Airbus Defense and Space and Hexagon Geospatial Partner to Provide Access to Data in Smart Applications

The content provided by Airbus Defense and Space will combine very-high and high resolution optical imagery from Pléiades and SPOT satellites with the Hexagon Geospatial offering. This partnership will fuel the creation of new smart applications, which will provide end-users with easy access to fresh data and powerful technology to transform this data into useful information across all market segments – government, commercial, utilities, natural resources, and more.

“Hexagon Geospatial has changed the game by offering a platform to build and deliver smart applications to our customers,” said Greg Buckman, Head of Airbus Defense and Space’s Geo-Intelligence Programme Line in North America. “Now, with this new offering from Hexagon Geospatial, our data can be a part of localized, vertical market applications that improve customer accessibility to the technology they need.”

The Hexagon Geospatial Power Portfolio provides geospatial and industrial enterprise solutions to organizations across the globe. These solutions harness the power of information with tools and techniques for managing, manipulating and visualizing big data and integrate them with sensors, software, knowledge and customer workflows.   

“Today’s sophisticated end-users want customized analytics that meet their dynamic and unique workflows – providing them with a quick snapshot to support faster and more effective decision-making,” said Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial. “Our new partnership with Airbus Defense and Space satisfies this need by empowering the creation of smart applications that leverage both enhanced imagery and our software solutions.”

Initially, the partnership will provide users with access to content from Airbus Defense and Space’s Pléiades and SPOT satellites.  In the future, the plan is to make available the powerful radar data from the TerraSAR-X satellite and a range of digital elevation models for Hexagon Geospatial smart applications as well.
