Airbus Defence and Space recognised for pioneering work
Airbus Defence and Space’s GEO-Information Services Division, through its German operation Infoterra, has been recognised for its outstanding achievement in successfully commercialising space-based radar imagery at Aviation Week’s 54th Annual Laureate Awards.
The Laureate Awards recognise outstanding individuals and teams for their achievements in the areas of aviation, aerospace and defence. The Infoterra team and its partners were praised for using instruments on the Airbus Defence and Space-built TerraSAR-X satellite, as well as Italy’s Cosmo-SkyMed and MDA’s Radarsat 1 and 2 satellites, in firmly establishing radar imagery and related services in the commercial arena.
This prestigious award is testament to the pioneering work that Airbus Defence and Space has undertaken in both the acquisition and distribution of radar imagery.
By integrating the latest developments in information technology and Earth observation, Airbus Defence and Space GEO-Information Services provides a range of innovative solutions that span the entire geo-information value chain, including airborne and satellite data acquisition and processing, image analysis, data management and consultancy.
