Ibadan, 12 March 2024. – e-GEOS  and Umbra have entered a Reseller Agreement that will grant e-GEOS non-exclusive, world-wide distribution rights for Umbra SAR satellite data, marking a significant advancement in the accessibility and availability of high resolution SAR imagery. Therefore, by the Agreement, e-GEOS will enrich its SAR satellite data offering and Umbra will target a larger pool of customers, users and application services. Both Companies’ satellites offer imaging capabilities, capturing high-resolution data at any time, day or night, and in all weather conditions.

More specifically, the Agreement enables e-GEOS to order new tasking imagery as well as data from Umbra’s archive. This will thus complement the Italian Space Agency’s COSMO-SkyMed First and Second Generation capabilities with high temporal revisit data from the Umbra constellation, which Umbra and COSMO-SkyMed data may be also combined to generate and distribute value-added and derivative products.

Additionally, the agreement establishes terms and conditions that enable fast, joint response to market opportunities, combining both Parties’ satellite assets with e-GEOS expertise in the development of services and applications delivered through proprietary vertical digital platforms.

Speaking on the collaboration, Paolo Minciacchi, CEO of e-GEOS and SVP of Telespazio Geo Information Line of Business, said, “Reaching this agreement with Umbra reinforces our role as a world leader in geoinformation with access to new and different SAR capabilities in which we already have unique expertise.” The CEO also added, “This agreement is key to pool not only data, but strong expertise in the SAR world that has exponential development opportunities.”

Likewise, David Langan, co-founder and CEO of Umbra, added, “Partnering with e-GEOS brings together the two highest resolution commercial SAR constellations in the world. Our combined capability will provide unparalleled resolution and timeliness for the world’s most demanding missions.”
