“There was a time when affordable, small form factor commercial spaceborne collection capabilities were not available due to technology limitations and manufacturing, launch and operation costs,” said Rob Mitrevski, vice president and general manager, Environmental Intelligence and Integrated Sensing Solutions, Exelis Geospatial Systems. “Today, Exelis is at the forefront of a market shift toward greater affordability, lower size, weight and power requirements and increased revisit rate. This is due to our sustained leadership in the commercial remote sensing market and our investments in innovation, ranging from imagery collection through processing, exploitation and dissemination of actionable information.”

Exelis small satellite solutions are an example of innovative product offerings the company has as part of its strategic focus on intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and analytics. Exelis designed the imaging system for IKONOS, the first commercial imaging satellite, as well as the entire imaging system — consisting of a 1.1 meter aperture telescope — for the world’s highest resolution, super-spectral WorldView-3 satellite. In addition, Exelis has designed and built every domestic commercial remote sensing imaging system, including QuickBird, WorldView-1, GeoEye-1, WorldView-2 and the soon-to-be-launched WorldView-4 satellite.

A full range of mission critical networks and intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and analytics solutions will be available to view at the Exelis booth #300A during the 31st Space Symposium at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado, April 13-16.
