"We are very pleased by this opportunity to increase our support to one of our most important customers," said Matthew O'Connell, ORBIMAGE's Chief Executive Officer. "These recent awards from NGA reflect the US Government's increasing reliance on the commercial satellite imaging industry to support its global geospatial intelligence mission."


ORBIMAGE is a leading global provider of earth imagery products and services, with digital remote sensing satellites and an integrated worldwide image receiving, processing and distribution network. In addition to the high- resolution OrbView-3 satellite, which is capable of measuring, mapping and monitoring objects smaller than automobiles and spectrally differentiating thousands of land use/land cover types, ORBIMAGE also operates the OrbView-2 ocean and land multispectral imaging satellite and the SeaStar Fisheries Information Service, which provides maps derived from essential oceanographic information to aid in commercial fishing. ORBIMAGE also produces value-added imagery products and provides advanced photogrammetric engineering services at its St. Louis facility. The company distributes its products directly to the U.S. government for national security and related mapping applications. Commercial sales are primarily handled through a worldwide network of value- added resellers, regional distributors, sales agents, and select strategic partners. Over 10 million square kilometers of imagery has been collected since the launch of OrbView-3 in June 2003, which includes imagery of most of the world's capital cities, airports, and other areas of interest. The company is currently building a next-generation satellite, OrbView-5, to support the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency's NextView image acquisition program. When OrbView-5 is launched in 2007, this next-generation commercial imaging satellite will acquire up to 700,000 square kilometers of imagery each day at the unprecedented resolution of 0.41-meters. ORBIMAGE is a member of the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation.
