RapidEye, a leader in wide area, repetitive coverage of Earth through its constellation of satellites announced that a partnership agreement has been signed between RapidEye and the ImageSat International.

The agreement allows ImageSat to use RapidEye imagery to colorize their panchromatic 0.7 meter resolution imagery to produce a colorized product.

John Ahlrichs, RapidEye's Vice President commented, "This unique partnership combines the strengths of two major imaging companies. RapidEye's global, fresh archive of five meter data is the perfect source for ImageSat to use in creating a color ImageSat product.  We can almost guarantee that we will have imagery in our extensive archive that will meet the needs of Imagesat and their customers."

"This partnership allows ImageSat to bring another dimension to the very high resolution panchromatic EROS  images," said Rani Hellerman, Director of Business Development for ImageSat. "The combination of RapidEye's constellation and the EROS satellites allows ImageSat to offer colorized data with great quality for a wide range of applications.“

RapidEye is continually forming strategic partnerships in multiple markets with the goal of creating business opportunities worldwide.
