Toulouse, France. 9 September 2013 – As previously announced during its teaser campaign, Astrium Services, Europe’s leading space technology company, has today launched a new video designed to communicate the diversity and value of its range of Earth observation services, connect to existing and potential customers while strengthening its identity in a highly competitive geo-information market.

Entitled “Picture the Future: How Astrium Services can help shape our world”, the video draws upon Astrium’s expertise in satellite imagery, monitoring and intelligence services to demonstrate the impact its technology can have on a raft of market segments including the defence and security, civil engineering, avionics, energy, and agriculture industries.

The video, which marks the beginning of a global marketing campaign, illustrates how Astrium Services remains, since almost 30 years, one of the main leaders in the geo-information market. The release of this film signifies several months of activity demonstrating the firm determination to continually improve the way it connects with its customers.

Bernhard Brenner, Executive Director of Astrium Services’ GEO-information Division explained:

“In an industry too often characterised by one-size-fits-all solutions we’re committed to an era of greater communication with our customers, listening more than ever to them to understand their sector-specific needs and working closely together to deliver new and customised services.

“This is the age of collaboration. Many of our new and evolving service offerings have been developed by working closely with clients seeking new solutions to the daily challenges they face, and the time is right to launch a new campaign underlining our determination to play an even bigger role in helping a range of industries benefit from the advantages of space age technology.”
