UrtheCast, SIIS Sign Mutual Distribution Agreement
UrtheCast and its subsidiary Deimos Imaging have signed an agreement with SI Imaging Services (SIIS) for the mutual global distribution of their respective product portfolios.
Deimos Imaging and SIIS’ space assets include Deimos 1, Deimos 2 and the KompSat series KompSat 2, KompSat 3, KompSat 3A and KompSat 5 — resulting in a wide portfolio of X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and optical data in a wide range of resolutions, from 22 m to 0.4 m per pixel.
According to Deimos and SIIS, the combination of radar with very high-resolution optical imagery will allow observation of the Earth day and night, regardless of weather conditions, and is intended to provide a constant asset monitoring service. This is key for a range of applications, especially those requiring frequent monitoring over the same area of interest and real-time response, such as emergency services, border and maritime surveillance, and defense and security.
“This is a great opportunity to broaden our reach and widen our geospatial data distribution options, as we are introducing Deimos Imaging’s imagery to our resellers while presenting KompSat to their networks. This will allow us to provide our customers with more precise answers to their needs,” said SIIS Vice President Wookhyun Choi.
