Longmont, Colo. – DigitalGlobe (NYSE: DGI), a leading global provider of commercial high-resolution world imagery products and services for defense and intelligence, civil government, and commercial customers, announced that its latest high-resolution satellite, WorldView-2, has achieved full operational capability. Imagery from the satellite is now available to global resellers, partners, and customers.

Launched on October 8, 2009, WorldView-2 joins DigitalGlobe’s existing sub-meter satellites, QuickBird and WorldView-1, on orbit. WorldView-2 significantly expands the constellation’s collection capacity, enabling an annual imaging capacity equivalent to three times the area of earth’s land mass, and allows for intraday revisit, providing customers with the most timely, relevant imagery available in the commercial market. WorldView-2 is also the industry’s first commercial high-resolution satellite to offer eight multispectral bands, which provide more spectral information and allow for greater analysis capabilities, including improved feature identification and change detection.

“Today’s achievement is an exciting milestone for both DigitalGlobe and the satellite imagery industry as a whole,” said Jill Smith, chairman and chief executive officer of DigitalGlobe. “Our three satellite constellation, together with our comprehensive ImageLibrary, will enable us to provide our customers with more comprehensive high-resolution imagery coverage of the world faster than ever before. The innovation offered by WorldView-2, including industry leading agility and the unique eight multispectral bands, will bring new value to the earth imaging industry and imagery’s every day users.” To learn more about DigitalGlobe’s advanced constellation of sub-meter satellites, please visit www.digitalglobe.com.
