DigitalGlobe, a leading provider of commercial high-resolution satellite imagery and a subsidiary of Maxar Technologies, has announced the launch of its Rapid Access Program, a service that allows clients to task DigitalGlobe satellites to high-priority targets.

“DigitalGlobe designed the Rapid Access Program to reduce the time needed to gather mission critical insights for confident decision making,” said DigitalGlobe President Dan Jablonsky. “The easy-to-use interface allows customers to focus on their core missions, empowering them to customize geospatial intelligence data priorities and address their most pressing challenges.”

The Rapid Access Program is described as a cloud-based platform seamlessly connecting customers to high resolution, accurate imagery and actionable intelligence. It will offer its customers flexible, efficient imagery collection, over their region of interest, with priority level on the DigitalGlobe constellation – meaning collections submitted against assigned satellite access time are assured.

Customers log in through a simple, online portal where they can develop collection plans with DigitalGlobe’s five high-resolution satellites. The platform’s intuitive interface for planning and collection optimization, developed by Orbit Logic, a DigitalGlobe partner, allows customers the flexibility to modify collection targets up to 90 minutes prior to image acquisition.

For customers with a Rapid Access Program subscription, DigitalGlobe retrieves, processes, and delivers imagery for viewing, extracting data, and distribution within six hours. Within the portal, customer imagery is kept in a private archive and DigitalGlobe offers subsequent production of finished imagery for system-ready, view-ready, and map-ready intelligence.
