Space Imaging Eurasia starts direct tasking of IKONOS Satellite

Space Imaging Eurasia, located in Ankara, Turkey, has started direct tasking and data collection of high-resolution imagery from the IKONOS satellite. Space Imaging Eurasia is the newest Regional Affiliate of Space Imaging.

The IKONOS satellite is the world’s first commercial high-resolution Earth imaging satellite. The regional operation center and ground station is able to collect imagery directly from the IKONOS satellite as it passes through a 4,600 km diameter communications circle centered over Ankara. Space Imaging Eurasia is selling IKONOS-based imagery products and services to commercial and government clients in the Eurasia region and exclusively in Turkey.

Space Imaging Eurasia, also known as INTA Space Systems, is a partnership of Çukurova Holding, one of the largest conglomerate corporations in Turkey, and Uydusan Inc.

Data from IKONOS is expected to have unlimited applications in a number of markets including energy and natural resources, transportation, telecommunications, national security, mapping, infrastructure planning, disaster and crisis management, agriculture and forestry.
