Airbus Defense and Space and Hexagon Geospatial have signed an agreement for a content-sharing program that will enable Hexagon Smart M.App developers and end-users to access and benefit from Airbus Defense and Space’ Earth observation data. This content is now available through the Smart M.App platform, including new and archive very-high and high resolution optical imagery products from Pléiades (50cm) and SPOT (1.5m) satellites.
Hexagon Smart M.App is a cloud application that delivers a dynamic information experience. It provides a powerful and simple way to incorporate analysis into intelligent maps to help solve real business problems. This partnership will allow developers to create new applications giving end-users easy access to fresh geospatial information coupled with business intelligence to monitor and understand change in their areas of interest.
"Hexagon Geospatial has created new opportunities for developers to build and deliver game changing applications to our customers, "said Greg Buckman, Head of Airbus Defense and Space’s Intelligence Business activities in North America. "We are excited to see how our data, integrated within these applications, can help organizations make sound business decisions."
Hexagon Geospatial helps its customers envision, experience and communicate geographic information through creative software products and platforms. The company’s technology stack provides the form to design, develop and deliver solutions that solve complex, real-world challenges.
"Today’s sophisticated end-users want customized analytics that meet their dynamic and unique workflows – providing them with a quick snapshot to support faster and more effective decision-making," said Mladen Stojic, President of Hexagon Geospatial. "Our new partnership with Airbus Defense and Space satisfies this need by empowering the creation of smart applications that leverage both enhanced imagery and our software solutions."
In the future, Airbus Defense and Space would like to make powerful radar data from the TerraSAR-X satellites and a range of digital elevation models available for Hexagon Geospatial smart applications as well.
