Brandenburg, Germany: RapidEye signed distributor agreement with Canada-based VIASAT GeoTechnologies.
Joerg Widmer, Sales Executive of RapidEye, said, “We have already worked on significant data projects with VIASAT GeoTechnologies in the past. We expect VIASAT GeoTechnologies to complement our expertise in the GIS industry.”
Pierre Vincent, Executive Vice President of VIASAT GeoTechnologies, said “We have worked with many EO satellite technologies over the years and we are really excited about the new opportunities RapidEye has opened for us. The possibility to cover huge areas over short periods of time with 5-m resolution is a great advantage in big, high-latitude countries such as ours.”
Currently, RapidEye is working on completing its worldwide network of distributors in order to facilitate easy access to RapidEye products in its customers’ own language and region.
