Earth-i has Quality at the Heart of Operations

Earth-i, the innovative British distributor of earth observation imagery and services, understands that the buyers and users of remote sensing imagery need to have confidence in their suppliers.

Driven by this customer-focus, Earth-i staff have worked tirelessly to implement a new Quality Management System (QMS) certified by globally renowned BSI Group to the ISO9001:2015 standard for the provision of imagery data, information products and value added products and services derived from Earth Observation satellites.

The achievement is a further milestone in the development of the company and the provision of data and value added services from the DMC3/TripleSat constellation of three very high resolution satellites.

What is so impressive is that Earth-i is one of the very first satellite Earth Observation companies whose QMS has been certified to the new ISO9001:2015 international standard. A copy of the certificate can be viewed here

Earth-i’s new certification provides assurance to customers, old and new, of Earth-i’s quality processes for the efficient and timely delivery of satellite imagery and related data.

Commenting on the company’s award Earth-i’s CEO, Richard Blain, said; “Quality and consistency in the delivery of our products and services is critical to us at Earth-i and we recognise the importance of these standards for the benefit of our customers.”

“Whilst our existing customers are already familiar with our high levels of service, we expect this certification to lead to an expansion of our customer base, especially with larger organisations and government bodies. Our certification by the British Standards Institute gives decision-makers the confidence to move forward rapidly, knowing they are on a solid footing with Earth-i.”

Earth-i’s imagery, data and value-added analysis supports and enables better decision making in a vast range of applications across many industries. The ISO9001:2015 certification demands that the company works within a framework of rigorous standards to ensure customer satisfaction.

Earth-i is a British company dedicated to facilitating the distribution of data from the DMC3/TripleSat Constellation. As the master distributor appointed by 21AT, Earth-i provides a portal for data users wishing to take advantage of the advanced data and services made possible by this uniquely capable Earth Observation satellite constellation.

Earth-i is co-located on the Surrey Research Park in the UK with Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd, the manufacturer of the DMC3/TripleSat Constellation. www.earthi.space
