Airbus Defense and Space and 3v Geomatics Partner for TerraSARX Imagery Acquisition Program

Jun 22, 2016 -- Airbus Defense and Space and 3v Geomatics Inc. (3v Geomatics) have signed a multi-year agreement that will provide 3v Geomatics with Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery acquired by TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X satellites. Both sensors deliver imagery access with resolution ranging from 25cm to 40m, an unrivalled geometric accuracy combined with the unique ability to collect anywhere in the world, independent of weather conditions.

The multi-year agreement will provide 3v Geomatics with the ability to utilize both the unique radar imagery archive, as well as a series of new TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X acquisitions. As a leading provider of Interferometric SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) monitoring services, 3v Geomatics has extensive technical experience in providing accurate change detection information, to detect surface movements which result from Oil, Gas and mining activities or constitute possible threats for structural integrity of infrastructure.

“We are thrilled to leverage the unique capabilities of TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X to help 3v Geomatics meet the needs of their customers” said Greg Buckman, Head of Airbus Defense and Space’s Intelligence Business activities in North America. “3v Geomatics is now able to offer a unique combination of radar imagery interpretation and information extraction to deliver actionable information over areas where near-real time information is needed.”

Adrian McCardle, President of 3v Geomatics, said: “We are pleased to continue strengthening our relationship with Airbus Defense and Space through this partnership agreement. We look forward to further expand and develop our joint business, and to provide radar solutions that facilitate the requirements of our customers across all sectors.”

TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X are specifically optimized to meet the requirements of users around the globe who require readily available, high-quality and precise Earth observation data - independent of lighting and weather conditions. Airbus Defence and Space holds the exclusive commercial distribution rights for the data of the two satellites.
