Forging Ahead – Announcing Distribution Partnerships with European Space Imaging and Space Imaging Middle East
Things are continuing to take off for us here at Skybox. Yesterday, European Space Imaging (EUSI) announced that they have been assigned by Emirates Space Imaging to deliver products and services from our SkySat satellite constellation in Europe, North Africa and CIS countries. EUSI will host a compact SkyNode ground station that will allow for direct tasking of our satellites. The SkyNode is under construction at the Oberpfaffenhofen premises of the German Aerospace Center and is expected to be operational by May 2014.
Additionally, Space Imaging Middle East (SIME), today announced it was also assigned by Emirates Space Imaging to oversee the operation of an Abu Dhabi-based SkyNode ground station in order to deliver Skybox products and services to the West Asia and East Africa regions. Both EUSI and SIME will soon start delivering our satellite imagery and high-definition video to a wide range of customers.
Brian Leslie, our Senior Director of International Sales, said of the partnerships: “Working with these experienced regional data providers will allow us to introduce Skybox’s new generation remote sensing into their regions offering frequent access to full-motion video and imagery.”
