On his part, the director of earth observation in the DSA, Air Vice Marshal Emmanuel Chukwu stated that troops at the front-line fighting insurgency need intelligence to succeed.
“The DSA is established to support them with geospatial intelligence for them to know how the enemies manoeuvre through satellite imagery and so on and so forth.
