ImageSat International N.V. is an international company and a commercial provider of high-resolution, satellite earth-imagery collected by its Earth Remote Observation Satellite (EROS).
On December 5, 2000 ImageSat successfully launched its first satellite, EROS A, aboard a Russian Start-1 launch vehicle. In so doing, ImageSat became the second company in the world to successfully deploy a non-governmentally owned high-resolution imaging satellite.
On April 25, 2006 ImageSat successfully launched its second satellite , EROS B using the same type of Start- 1 launcher.
One of the few global service providers in the high-resolution satellite imagery niche, ImageSat is distinguished by:
- Exclusive service packages, including exclusive use of the EROS satellite over a designated footprint
- Flexible imaging parameters
- International (non-US) operation
- Fast image acquisition and delivery
- Competitive pricing
- No Risk - Pay only for services received
ImageSat is also unique in that it has a second satellite of the EROS family. The EROS B satellite was launched on April 25, 2006 and all the systems are working as expected. Operating simultaneously with EROS A, EROS B double revisit frequency, enabling customers to better onitor designated targets.
ImageSat's principal business is operating high-resolution satellites and providing exclusive, autonomous high-resolution satellite imaging services to Governments and their Defense Forces for National Security and Intelligence applications. While National Security and Intelligence applications typically drive the national imaging program agenda, such programs often are used for civilian government and commercial geospatial information applications.
