Esri Signs Global Enterprise Agreement with Airbus Defence and Space

Redlands, California—Esri, the global leader in spatial analytics, today announced that it entered into an enterprise agreement with the intelligence program line of Airbus Defence and Space. With this new agreement in place, the core GIS will be expanded to meet Airbus’s pivotal mission of using creativity and innovation to address the massive economic, social, and environmental challenges our planet faces.

The enterprise agreement is global in nature and includes all Airbus Defence and Space intelligence affiliates. The agreement also includes several addendums to cover the complete use of Esri’s ArcGIS platform by Airbus Defence and Space.

“The potential of this agreement can be expected to reach far beyond today’s use of the Airbus Defence and Space core geographic information systems,” says Greg Buckman, head of Airbus Defence and Space’s intelligence business activities in North America. “Enterprise-wide access to the ArcGIS platform will provide new and faster spatial analytical functionality through web services to support key Airbus initiatives. This bears the potential for significant cost savings and speed to market while enhancing crucial cross-domain functionality on a global basis.”

Airbus Defence and Space has used Esri technology as part of its GIS for 26 years.

“Esri shares in this vision and looks forward to supporting Airbus Defence and Space through the deployment of ArcGIS Enterprise,” said Lawrie Jordan, Esri’s director of imagery and remote sensing. “Having a complete GIS platform is vital to organizations such as Airbus Defence and Space that operate on a global scale and for whom geographic awareness is crucial.”
