Airbus and Hexagon partner for high-res imagery

By on 2 June, 2015


Airbus Defense and Space and Hexagon Geospatial have formed a partnership to provide access to high-resolution satellite imagery data in smart applications.

The partnership was formed to develop a new content-sharing program that will enable end-users to have access to Earth observation data and software through smart applications offered by Hexagon Geospatial.

Airbus Defense and Space will provide very-high and high resolution optical imagery from Pléiades and SPOT satellites for use within the Hexagon Geospatial software. This partnership will fuel the creation of new smart applications, which will provide end-users with easy access to fresh data and powerful technology to transform this data into useful information across all market segments, including government, commercial, utilities and natural resources.

“Today’s sophisticated end-users want customised analytics that meet their dynamic and unique workflows – providing them with a quick snapshot to support faster and more effective decision-making,” said Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial. “Our new partnership with Airbus Defense and Space satisfies this need by empowering the creation of smart applications that leverage both enhanced imagery and our software solutions.”

Initially, the partnership will provide users with access to content from Airbus Defense and Space’s Pléiades and SPOT satellites. The future plan is to make available the radar data from the TerraSAR-X satellite, as well as a range of digital elevation models for Hexagon Geospatial smart applications.
