OrbImage and Spot Link Up; Ikonos Readied for Launch
Orbital Sciences Corp.'s OrbImage subsidiary and France's Spot Image have agreed to sell each other's imagery in select markets, a move that will substantially broaden the offerings of both companies.
The five-year agreement gives Spot Image a foothold in the emerging commercial market for high-resolution satellite imagery and provides OrbImage with access to wide-field-of-view imagery. The companies were planning to announce the deal in Paris on Sept. 22, two days before competitor Space Imaging planned to launch its high-resolution Ikonos satellite.
