ORBIMAGE announced that it has been presented with RADARSAT International’s Outstanding Distributor Award for excellence in sales in Eastern North America. The award was presented to ORBIMAGE at RSI’s International Distributor meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia on May 16th, 2002.
Since November 1999, ORBIMAGE has been successfully marketing and selling increasing amounts of radar image data from the RADARSAT-1 satellite to commercial and government users in the U.S. marketplace. Due to the growing demand in the U.S. for such quality satellite imagery, ORBIMAGE purchased the exclusive marketing rights in the U.S. to sell data from RADARSAT-2, the follow-on satellite planned for launch in late 2003. Once launched, RADARSAT-2 will further enhance ORBIMAGE’s product line offering of high-resolution optical image products with radar imagery from the world’s most advanced commercial high-resolution Synthetic Aperature Radar (SAR) satellite. RADARSAT-2 is designed to provide users with 24-hour, all-weather image acquisition capabilities with a resolution of up to three meters.
“ORBIMAGE is honored to receive this recognition from RADARSAT International for our achievement in selling RADARSAT-1 data to the U.S. user community,” says Timothy J. Puckorius, ORBIMAGE’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing & Sales.
