RapidEye Commits to Data Continuity; Discusses System Health and Life Span

Berlin, Germany, January 17, 2013 – RapidEye, a leader in high-resolution, wide area repetitive coverage of earth through its constellation of five satellites announced a positive update on the health and lifespan of its satellites. In addition, Michael Oxfort has been appointed to lead the development of the company’s data continuity strategy.

“The RapidEye System has proven to be extremely robust,” commented Brian D'Souza, PhD, RapidEye's Head of Engineering. “In August of 2008, we experienced a nearly flawless launch. After four years in orbit, the constellation continues to operate effectively, with all five satellites fully operational. Based on the current performance of the satellites and the abundance of consumables such as propellant and power, RapidEye now expects our constellation to perform into 2019 or later.”

While the RapidEye engineering team continues to push the current system performance to even greater heights, RapidEye senior management is developing a plan to ensure data continuity. Michael Oxfort, Chief Technology Officer, is now leading the development of the company’s technical strategy for data continuity.
