Satellite Vu, one of the up and coming U.K. space companies, has signed a deal with Viasat to use its Real-Time Earth global ground service network to ensure rapid reception and dissemination of thermal imagery from its satellites. The partnership was announced Sept. 28.

This partnership will enable Satellite Vu to regularly contact its constellation throughout the day and night to ensure rapid responsiveness to customers for tasking new collections, low latency times, and high-speed delivery of its thermal imagery and derived analytics. Viasat is a major ground service provider operating a global antenna network.

“We are delighted to partner with Viasat with whom we share a mission to bring information into people’s hands across the globe. We hope our data will be able to revolutionise the fight against climate change, by connecting people to independent data, giving them the ability to measure and therefore manage their communities, neighbourhoods, and livelihoods sustainably for future generations,” Anthony Baker, founder and CEO of Satellite Vu said in a statement.
