GeoEye and Rolta Form Strategic Partnership to Develop Advanced Geospatial Solutions for Global Markets

Today’s military commanders working in digital battlefield environments need intelligent maps derived from geospatial data and map-accurate imagery to make effective command and control decisions in the field. Rolta is exploring opportunities to leverage GeoEye’s imagery service and predictive analytics’ expertise to develop defense and homeland security solutions served from its Geospatial Fusion Platform to help users see, understand and anticipate change when lives are at risk.

Preetha Pulusani, Rolta’s chief strategy officer, said, “Rolta has been engaged in providing geospatial solutions for over two decades. Imagery plays a critical role – especially for defense and homeland security – to enable users to rapidly analyze change, visualize impacts and make informed decisions in the field in a timely manner. We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with GeoEye to provide our customers with tools and content to meet their most challenging needs.”

Rolta also plans to develop intelligent 3-D city solutions for commercial users in urban planning, construction and infrastructure development. Ninety percent of the fastest-growing metropolitan economies are located outside North America and Western Europe and in regions such as Southern Asia. Rolta intends to offer these high-growth global markets financially accessible 3-D model solutions developed from GeoEye satellite imagery.

Tony Frazier, GeoEye’s senior vice president of Marketing, said, “Geospatial intelligence has become crucial to decision making. We are excited about this partnership and believe that our world-class imagery, information service capabilities and expertise, coupled with Rolta’s product development and IT services track record, will produce innovative geospatial solutions that deliver clear, deep and timely insights to global government and commercial users.”
