Fairfax, VA - October 12, 2006 - 3001 International, Inc. ("3001"), the geospatial company, announced today that Lieutenant General (USAF Ret.) James R. Clapper, Jr., has agreed to join its Board of Directors.
General Clapper was the first civilian Director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. His experience serving both the intelligence and defense communities makes him an ideal member of the Board given 3001’s strategic mission and geospatial service offerings in these industries.

He retired as a Lieutenant General from the United States Air Force after a 32-year career. General Clapper’s last military assignment was as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. His earlier assignments included a variety of intelligence-related positions such as Assistant Chief of Staff, Intelligence, and Headquarters USAF, during Operations Desert Shield/Desert Storm. Additionally he served as Director of Intelligence for three war-fighting commands: United States Forces, Korea; Pacific Command; and, Strategic Air Command.
In addition to serving the civil works and airborne imaging industries, 3001 is a prime National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) contractor on the Global Geospatial Intelligence contract and has served Department of Defense clients with mapping and imagery analysis solutions for decades.
"General Clapper possesses a life-time of hard-earned defense and intelligence industry knowledge, gained through tough decision-making and topnotch leadership in both public and private service," said 3001’s CEO, Bart Bailey. "We hope to harness that wisdom by offering the General Board-level purview over 3001’s strategic move to the next level."
