Building the future

We pride ourselves with serving our customers with exactly what they need, when they need it. We ensure geospatial data continuity beyond 2030.

Airbus is a trailblazer in Earth observation and created the first commercial satellite imagery company, Spot Image, in 1982. Ever since, we have been fundamental in creating and developing the commercial satellite imagery market and geospatial data applications.

To do this, we continuously adapt our offer to meet evolving requirements and partner with other organisations to ensure that we deliver the perfect solution. Our partnership programme is gearing up with HawkEye 360 to deliver a new class of radio frequency (RF) data and analytics. We are also preparing the future with further extensions of our constellation through the CO3D, Strat-Observer and additional programs to come.

What our customers say

Our services are recommended by industry experts just like you

We regularly track North Korean activity, especially when it concerns nuclear developments. For us, the timeliness and resolution of Pléiades imagery is the key to quick and accurate analysis.

Our Agriculture information system requires 80.000 km² high resolution imagery to monitor crop status and estimate the yield. For a big country like Turkey it was a challenge …Thanks to Airbus high spatial and temporal resolution, we can provide the TARBIL project its much needed country-wide satellite imagery.

It is the willingness of Airbus to engage at speed and provide accurate and relevant output in times of stress that is helping shape our relationship. This valuable data combined with other information sources we share not only with our CSOs to better protect their crews, but the military as we work to develop a two way dialogue with the CSOs of the merchant marine.
