Turning Imagery into Insights

Airbus helps the GEOINT Community access, exploit satellite imagery


Thanks to the latest advances in commercial remote sensing, the view from space today is as deep as it is wide. Airbus (Booth 833) will bring that view into focus at GEOINT 2017, where it will demonstrate its expertise in satellite imagery acquisition, data processing, fusion, dissemination, and intelligence extraction.

“Our theme this year is ‘From Imagery and Data to Knowledge and Decision Making,’” said David Robinson, vice president, National Security Programs Government – Intelligence, North America, Airbus. “We will be showcasing a variety of topics in our portfolio that can help the GEOINT Community access the imagery, data, and information it needs to make mission-critical decisions.”

Symposium attendees can enjoy free coffee at Airbus’s booth, where the company will share commercial imagery from its Pléiades, SPOT, TerraSAR-X, and TanDEM-X satellites; demo WorldDEM Ocean Shoreline, a new product providing detailed and accurate shoreline mapping; and illustrate its capabilities in areas such as change detection and image processing and dissemination.

While they’re visiting Airbus, attendees also can sign up to receive a complimentary set of imagery from over the Los Angeles metro area.

“This sample data set includes 50-centimeter optical imagery over LAX airport, 3-meter radar imagery over the harbor, WorldDEM over high-elevation areas, SPOT 1.5-meter imagery over the entire L.A. metro area, as well as the new WorldDEM Ocean Shoreline product,” said Robinson.

He also invited attendees to an exclusive reception Tuesday evening at the Grand Hyatt. Interested parties should stop by the Airbus booth for an invitation to the event—a celebration of TerraSAR-X’s 10th anniversary, it will include light dinner, drinks, networking, and a preview of Airbus’s upcoming next-generation constellation of four identical satellites.
