European Space Imaging Celebrates 10 years of Leadership in Europe.

It’s 2002 and, following the launch of the first Very High Resolution (VHR) earth observation satellites, European Space Imaging (EUSI) is established in Munich, Germany. The company was founded with two goals: To become the leading provider of imagery throughout Europe & North Africa and to provide the unique service of locally tasking VHR satellites over these regions. Ten years later and EUSI continues to lead the way.

EUSI is the only European satellite data provider to operate a multi-mission capable, dedicated VHR satellite ground station and in January 2010 signed a strategic partnership with DigitalGlobe – the world’s leading commercial high resolution imagery provider and owner of the most powerful commercial VHR satellite constellation.

Over the past decade EUSI has been involved in some of the largest pan European projects in both the commercial and governmental sectors. These include the Agricultural Controls with Remote Sensing program of the European Commission, where EUSI have been the highest contributing VHR data provider to the project since its activation. This is reflected in the recent 2011 campaign statistics which show EUSI collecting 67% of the total project area with a 100% success rate.

EUSI have built strong links with national mapping and security agencies across Europe and North Africa and continue to serve urgent mapping requirements with their rapid tasking capabilities and rush order deliveries.

Looking ahead, EUSI have recently signed a three-year contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) for the provision of VHR satellite imageryinto the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) program and look forward to supporting this exciting, European wide program.

Throughout the coming year a series of celebrations are planned to mark 10 years of leadership in Europe and the company plans to share their success and provide an update on latest developments at their annual User Conference held in Munich in early summer.
