DigitalGlobe Reseller Doubles Russian Contract Order
[Satellite TODAY 06-05-12] DigitalGlobe will significantly expand its delivery of high-resolution imagery to Roslesinforg, a division of the Federal Forestry Agency of Russia, through its Sovzond regional distributor, the companies announced June 4.
Roslesinforg contracted Sovzond in 2011 to supply DigitalGlobe satellite imagery to better manage key forestry regions across the Russian Federation.
DigitalGlobe said Sovzond’s new contract more than doubles the amount of imagery to be delivered and greatly increases the regions covered to help the agency protect against illegal logging and manage urban development.
“Using the superior collection capacity and short cycle revisit capabilities of our three-satellite constellation, Roslesinforg will soon be able to access vital information across every square kilometer of forest in the country, helping their experts gain on-demand insight for planning, protection and management,” DigitalGlobe International Vice President Andrea Bersan said in a statement.
