Paris, France, 2nd October 2013 – Astrium Services’ GEO-Information and AeroGRID Ltd have signed a partnership for the distribution of Astrium GEO satellite imagery products.

AeroGRID customers will have access to data from Astrium’s unique satellite fleet comprising the SPOT 5 and 6 optical satellite family and the high-resolution Pléiades constellation. Through this agreement AeroGRID will not only offer its customers worldwide coverage of Astrium data at a variety of resolutions but also access to Astrium’s substantial portfolio of geo-information products, services and customised solutions.
Through this agreement, AeroGRID becomes part of Astrium’s global geo-information services Channel Partner Network.
