Germany, October 7, 2014: Airbus Defence and Space and Exelis have teamed up to streamline access of geospatial imagery from both the companies.

Under the agreement, existing customers of Exelis’ ENVI software will have access to Airbus Defence and Space’s imagery products through a downloadable plugin from the former. All new buyers of ENVI, though, will be able to access the imagery by year end.

Through an API now the ENVI users can actually find and discover the Geo-Intelligence imagery archive directly within their ENVI environment, besides fresh optical and radar imagery including 1.5m SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 and 50cm Pléiades data.

Stuart Blundell, General Manager at Exelis Visual Information Solutions said, “By letting ENVI users easily identify and geo- locate thumbnail previews of available imagery within an area of interest without leaving the ENVI environment, our customers will save time and make better decisions in mission and project planning and execution. This integrated approach modernizes the way that people will discover data and access new imagery in conjunction with their existing imagery or GIS layers.”
