Under the teaming, ASA will integrate Airbus Defense and Space's high- and medium-resolution, large area electro-optical satellites with extensive radar imagery collection capabilities to provide accurate, rapid and actionable intelligence.
"ASA is steadily building a network of satellite imagery and data providers that reflect our name and focus, AllSource Analysis, which enables our company to serve a new generation of decision makers in energy, insurance, government, defense, humanitarian and financial industries," said ASA Chief Executive Officer Stephen Wood. "This new partner agreement with Airbus Defense and Space represents a critical step in achieving our vision that combines our analytic tradecraft and unique imagery content along with many other sources of information.
"We're excited to help our customers incorporate the full range of satellite imagery technology that Airbus Defense and Space provides, and to enable actionable information that's easy for anyone to use."
"We are honored for ASA to join the Airbus Defense and Space Partner Network," said Bernhard Brenner, head of Geo Intelligence at Airbus Defense and Space. "With the largest network of resellers in the world, we know this partnership will bring additional value and be fruitful for our end users."
ASA serves the commercial and government imagery intelligence markets through the use of imaging, geo-spatial and open source technologies.
