The mobile app includes the ability to browse and select available commercial satellite images for any location. The selection and download of archived imagery can be completed in seconds, delivering high resolution satellite images for any location on demand.

SpyMeSatGov addresses the need to get recent high resolution satellite imagery quickly and easily into the hands of end-users for government purposes. It also provides the ability to evaluate multiple images of a single location for change detection including damage assessment.

The Innovated GEOINT Application Provider Program (IGAPP) sought out Orbit Logic to develop SpyMeSatGov based on the popular SpyMeSat mobile app available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. Unlike SpyMeSat, which sells satellite imagery to the public, SpyMeSatGov provides high resolution satellite imagery free to U.S. government and authorized users with approved EnhancedView accounts. IGAPP shepherded Orbit Logic through the accreditation process for the GEOINT App Store including validating security features.

“SpyMeSatGov makes it easy and quick to get and exploit satellite imagery on mobile devices.” said Alex Herz, President of Orbit Logic. “SpyMeSatGov provides real-time situational awareness and puts EnhancedView imagery in the hands of the government field personnel in seconds.”

SpyMeSatGov users can configure the app to enable or disable individual satellites, change the location of interest, and enable or disable various notification options and notification timing.
