OmniEarth Closes IRISmaps Acquisition

[Via Satellite 09-03-2014] OmniEarth has completed the purchase of IRISmaps in a stock-for-stock transaction. OmniEarth anticipates the acquisition will accelerate its growth in agriculture and energy: the top two markets the company is currently focusing on. IRISmaps portfolio of customized cloud-based geospatial solutions already includes asset and environmental monitoring products that agriculture and energy customers have deployed.

Satellite Imagery Company DMCii Invests in Data Centre

DMC International Imaging (DMCii), a global provider of satellite imagery products and services, has made major improvements to its data centre, involving a full internal upgrade of processing systems. Over five billion square kilometres of data, the equivalent of ten times the Earth’s surface, is under management in DMCii’s new virtualised environment.

A wing for Sentinel 2A

(1 September 2014)Imaging Earth’s land with unprecedented speed and resolution has come another step closer as the next Sentinel satellite has been given its solar wing and started a strenuous six-month test campaign to make sure that it is fit for launch next April.

Entrepreneurial Blueprint Bolsters Satellite Development

In the mid-1990s, the German Space Agency queried the nation’s aerospace industry to propose ideas for how Germany might enter the nascent commercial remote sensing business. Munich-based Kayser-Threde GmbH identified agriculture as a sector that held tremendous potential for satellite image applications but was poorly served by the U.S. Landsat and European SPOT systems. In both cases, the infrequent revisit cycle of the satellites hindered their abilities to cultivate the commercial agriculture market.

ScanEX: A unique archive of satellite images of the RF territory amounted to more than 3.5 million scenes

Over the 10-year period a unique archive of satellite images covering the territory of the Russian Federation created by ScanEx RDC amounted to more than 3.5 million scenes. The volume of data received and stored constituted almost 400,000 gigabytes. The company started to compile a proprietary archive of Earth remote sensing data back in 1996, when the network of UniScan™ stations began to carry out satellite data reception throughout the country. UniSan™ ground stations enable to receive data from a variety of spacecrafts in almost any part of the Russian Federation and in much of the CIS countries. The archive contains satellite data with a spatial resolution of 0.5 to 150 meters per pixel. This library data are widely used not only in Russia, but all over the world through catalogs of international providers of satellite data.

NASA selects instruments to track climate impact on vegetation

(30 July 2014) NASA has selected proposals for two new instruments that will observe changes in global vegetation from the International Space Station.

SSTL marks completion of TechDemoSat-1 LEOP phase with a “selfie”

Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL) releases an image taken by an inspection camera on board TechDemoSat-1 to mark the completion of the Launch and Early Operations Phase (LEOP) for the satellite, which was launched on 8th July. The image was taken minutes after separation of the satellite from the Soyuz-2 launcher and shows a view of the Earth from space, with the spacecraft’s Antenna Pointing Mechanism in shot.

ArcGIS Online users gain open access to Airbus Defense and Space imagery

Over 85 million square kilometres of fresh basemap imagery from Airbus Defense and Space has been opened-up for ArcGIS users.

Launch of SPOT 7 completes Airbus Defence and Space observation satellite constellation

  • The SPOT 7 Earth-observation satellite, designed and developed by Airbus Defence and Space, was launched successfully from the space centre in India
  • It will join SPOT 6 and Pléiades 1A and 1B in orbit, thereby completing the optical satellite constellation operated by Airbus Defence and Space

*This constellation is one-of-a-kind in the optical satellite imagery market

Far more accurate satellite images on the way as US lifts restrictions

Satellite images have always been a bit fuzzy, thanks to the US government. But now the agency in charge is relaxing its rules, allowing mapping services like Google Maps or Bing Maps bring crystal clear pictures to their users.

Dauria Aerospace Secures Deal to Provide Full Daily Coverage with Earth Observation Imagery

In a joint venture with Elecnor Deimos, Dauria Aerospace is looking to “bring to commercial markets the capability of providing imagery of the entire arable surface of the Earth, utilizing cloud-based technologies, for the most efficient use of an unprecedented daily revisit time,” according to Mikhail Kokorich, founder and president of Dauria Aerospace. In this conversation with Editor in Chief Joe Francica, Kokorich provides more details on the technical specifications of the satellite constellation the venture will launch and the market strategy for delivering daily coverage to consumers.
