ORBIMAGE Introduces MasterCast(TM) in Version 6.0 of Its OrbMap(TM) Software

Interactive Tool to Identify Your Preferred Fishing Grounds

DULLES, Va., May 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ORBIMAGE Inc. (OTC: ORBM) (BULLETIN BOARD: ORBM) announced today the release of Version 6.0 of its OrbMap(TM) software, featuring MasterCast(TM). ORBIMAGE's OrbMap(TM) software and SeaStar(SM) Fisheries Information Service support commercial fishing captains worldwide by combining the world's highest quality plankton data from ORBIMAGE's OrbView-2 satellite with other meteorological and oceanographic data. ORBIMAGE processes and transmits the derived information products, in the form of digital maps, to fishing vessels worldwide, which the captains then view and manipulate using the OrbMap(TM) software on their vessel's personal computer. By using the SeaStar(SM) and OrbMap(TM) software, fishing captains can better determine where to search for fish, minimizing search time and reducing high vessel operating and fuel costs.
