    Global business newsrooms are abuzz with rumours on MDA planning to buy DigitalGlobe. But there are some serious hurdles.DigitalGlobe, of Longmont, Colorado, USA, is a commercial vendor of space imagery and geospatial content, and operator of civilian remote sensing spacecraft. The earth observation company went public on the New York Stock Exchange on 14 May 2009, selling 14.7 million shares at $19.00 each to raise $279 million in capital.

    DigitalGlobe is the industry-leading provider of Earth imagery and information about our changing planet, and a trusted partner to both governments and commercial customers.
