The station will be located in Lethbridge, Alberta, and will collect imagery over much of Canada and the United States, serving clients in both countries. Iunctus is the exclusive SPOT channel partner responsible for all commercial activity in the Canadian market.
The “Easy Link to SPOT” (ELS) receiving station includes a dish antenna and SPOT 5 Terminal, which will automate all operations from data reception to production. The agreement covers reception of data from the SPOT 2, SPOT 4 and SPOT 5 satellites.
The SPOT Image Group, headquartered in Toulouse, France, and its five subsidiaries in the United States, Australia, Singapore, China and Japan draw on a global network of ground receiving stations, channel partners and distributors to bring satellite imaging and geographic information solutions to private- and public-sector decision-makers the world over.
