HOUMA, La. and HOUSTON – Airborne Support Inc.

The joint venture will capitalize on the strong reputation Airborne Support Inc. has developed as a leader for aerial dispersant application in the Americas and on Fototerra’s strength in aerial remote sensing with unique technologies for oil spill detection and analysis.

“This agreement represents each organization’s strong commitment to provide customers with a single source for the best in oil spill response,” commented Brad Barker, ASI President and CEO. “This joint venture expands the ASI offering into a total service solution.
