Space Imaging has announced that they have signed an agreement where Raytheon Australia has become a master reseller of Space Imaging’s products and services including imagery from IKONOS, the world’s first commercial high-resolution Earth imaging satellite. The agreement allows Raytheon Australia to exclusively sell high-resolution, high-accuracy satellite data from IKONOS to customers throughout Australasia, which includes Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
Space Imaging has imaged most of Australia during the past three years – ever since the launch of IKONOS. This 5.5 million sq km of nearly-cloud-free-imagery of the continent is currently available to customers around the world. Beginning this year, customers in Australasia will buy imagery from either Raytheon Australia or one of its resellers. Customers can also select from the more than 900,000 images in Space Imaging’s IKONOS archive for imagery elsewhere around the globe. Imagery from IKONOS can be taken at a resolution of .82 meters and is the most map-accurate satellite imagery in the world.
