DigitalGlobe unveils subscription service for tasking Earth-imaging satellites without ground station
DigitalGlobe is expanding its product line to include a new multi-year subscription service that allows customers to focus the company’s high-resolution optical imaging satellites on targets of interest without paying to own and operate a ground station.
Customers of SecureWatch, DigitalGlobe’s geospatial intelligence subscription service, now have access to imagery from the company’s WorldView-4 high resolution optical imaging satellite launched in 2016.
The remote sensing industry is trying to contribute to “global transparency,” said Walter Scott, chief technology officer of Maxar Technologies and founder of DigitalGlobe.
Geospatial data companies are focusing intently on acquiring satellite imagery quickly and speeding data delivery to customers.
"We are trying to effectively link air, land, sea and space. The geospatial context on the ground may give you some type of indications and warning of something happening in space," said Chirag Parikh, director of NGA's Office of Source Strategies.
