Astrium to form GEO-information business division


Paris, France 

In January 2011, Astrium Services will implement a single operational management structure, bringing together the imagery and services experts Spot Image and Infoterra to form the new GEO-Information division.

The GEO-Information division will now offer a fully-consolidated product and services portfolio under the Astrium brand covering the entire geographic information services value chain: from satellite imagery to high value-added solutions. “Astrium Services is focused on becoming the world leader in the field of geo-information solutions. Our recent commitment to financing the next generation of SPOT satellites and the current TerraSAR-X and most recent TanDEM-X missions are a clear demonstration of our ambition,” said Astrium Services’ CEO, Eric Béranger.

Patrick Le Roch, the new Divisional Managing Director of the GEO-Information division, added, “Our customers will now benefit from unrivalled expertise across the entire geo-information value chain. We will be able to respond to their complex needs with first class efficiency, worldwide.”

With this new fully-integrated management structure, customers will enjoy simplified access to Astrium’s unique extended offer of products and services provided through commercial Business Areas’ teams established on a regional basis worldwide.
