Thirty years ago Airbus Defence and Space stepped up with their satellite tasking services—unique at that time they provided support in a variety of services ranging from map updates, emergency response and land use analysis to mission planning and long-term asset monitoring.
Today, with One Tasking, Airbus Defence and Space is resetting the bar where cloud cover and other environmental factors can too often reduce the extractable value from the resulting imagery. This service makes satellite imagery acquisition and distribution much easier for the client, is intuitive and cost-effective and can be conducted from their desk. With 254/7/365 access to Airbus Defence and Space’s high-resolution and wide-swath satellite sensors. A team of in-house experts capture any requested area on time and in line with the customer’s requirements.
Bernhard Brenner, Head of Intelligence Business Cluster at Airbus Defence and Space spoke offering his insight, “We wanted to create a product which was unlike anything already on the market and truly focused on the customer and their needs. To achieve this we asked our customers to challenge us. The result was a clear desire to eliminate some of the risk and simplify the longwinded ordering-process clients associated with tasking satellites. With One Tasking, those objectives have been met and in many areas exceeded, especially with our commitment to only deliver the very best results, which we believe is a real game changer.”
