[Satellite TODAY 07-16-12] GeoEye has signed contract agreements two international partners in the Middle East and Asia for the renewal and expanded use of GeoEye imagery products, the company announced July 13.

“Both the Mideast Regional Affiliate and the Asian government customer have been trusted and valued partners for many years,” GeoEye Vice President of International Sales Paolo Colombi said in a statement. “We appreciate the extension of our partnerships and the expansion of our global footprint that these agreements represent. We look forward to supporting our partners’ mission critical requirements by delivering superior-quality location intelligence regarding these highly sensitive and dynamic regions of the world.”
