Astrium Services and IHS Sign a Partnership Agreement to Support GeoInt Community

Leveraging this partnership will enable IHS to provide new insights and even more up-to-date and detailed information, meeting demand for fused intelligence sources to tap easily accessed information. Invariably, geospatial data plays a critical role in developing intelligence, formulating strategic policy and driving operational interventions.

Astrium Services brings to IHS the capability to deliver imagery and defence-oriented services based on unique access to the only multi-resolution imaging satellite. Astrium’s offering has been specifically developed to support the high currency requirements of the GEOINT community, including the many and varied challenges faced by military and intelligence agencies.

Under the agreement, Astrium Services will provide newly acquired imagery from its Pléiades, SPOT and TerraSAR-X satellites for use as primary sources and fusion with open source information, for actionable intelligence. It will also provide access to the GO Monitor service, which delivers reliable surveillance and change information anywhere on Earth.

By fusing IHS insight with Astrium Services imagery, IHS analysts will be able to deliver broader contextual analysis and more granular insight in order to meet the needs of business and national security professionals.

With more than 100 years of history as Jane’s, IHS has a reputation built on products such as IHS Jane’s Fighting Ships, IHS Jane’s All the World’s Aircraft and IHS Jane’s Defence Weekly.
