Planetek Italia Joins Deimos Imaging Reseller Network

Planetek Italia is very glad to announce that is now an authorized distributor of Deimos Imaging, high-resolution world imagery solutions to customers in Italy.

Planetek Italia Deimos Imaging

Planetek Italia is an Italian SME company, with more than 20 years experience in the data processing, geo-information and systems development for geographic data management and Space missions.

With this agreement, Planetek Italia will enrich its capacity to offer remotely sensed satellite products and value added services, by adding DEIMOS-1 and DEIMOS-2 satellite data to its list of widely used imagery.

Deimos Imaging, subsidiary of UrtheCast Corp. (Canada), is a private Spanish company headquartered in Tres Cantos (Madrid) and with satellite control and processing facilities in Boecillo (Valladolid) and Puertollano (Ciudad Real).

Deimos Imaging owns and operates the DEIMOS-1 and DEIMOS-2 satellites with a 24/7 commercial service, thanks to three facilities in Spain and through its own network of ground stations in Canada, Sweden and Norway.

Moreover, Deimos Imaging also operates two sensors onboard the International Space Station: Theia – 5m, 50 km swath – and Iris, the world’s first full-color UHD video camera at 1m spatial resolution.

The DEIMOS Earth Observation system, owned and operated by Deimos Imaging, is currently composed of 2 satellites:

  • DEIMOS-1 provides 22m/pixel multispectral imagery with a very wide (650-km) swath, assuring very-high-frequency revisit on large areas, especially tailored for agriculture, forestry and monitoring applications in mind.
  • DEIMOS-2 is an agile satellite designed for cost-effective, dependable very-high-resolution EO applications. Providing 75-cm pan-sharpened images, it is the highest-resolution fully private satellite in Europe, and one of the very few privately owned submetric satellites in the world.
  • By contacting Planetek Italia sales dept., users can also ask for imagery from the satellites of the PanGeo Alliance, and multispectral imagery from Theia (5m resolution, 50 km swath) and videos collected in space from the Iris camera on the ISS. These 1m full-color videos from space provide unprecedented information useful for military intelligence and infrastructure monitoring on our planet

“We are excited to be an authorized distributor for Deimos Imaging.” said Giovanni Sylos Labini, CEO, Planetek Italia. “As provider of edge technologies for the European Space Agency (ESA), Italian Space Agency (ASI) and other leader research and development entities in Europe, Planetek Italia assure state of the art products to their customers. This agreement widens our geospatial distribution options, giving our current and reference customers more precise answers to their needs”.
