Skybox Imaging, Inc. Key Developments

Skybox Imaging, Inc. Announces Strategic Partnership with Japan Space Imaging

Skybox Imaging, Inc. announced it has entered into a multi-year, strategic partnership with Japan Space Imaging to provide high-resolution imagery and full motion commercial video to the Japanese market. The agreement, subject to U.S. regulatory approval, will enable JSI to directly task, downlink and receive imagery from Skybox's constellation of microsatellites on a reliable and frequent basis. Skybox will provide JSI a rapidly deployable ground station, called a SkyNode, comprised of a 2.4 meter communications antenna and two racks of supporting software and equipment. Skybox is pioneering the use of Apache Hadoop, an open-source framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets, for geospatial applications.

Skybox Imaging, Inc. Adds Imaging Satellite, SkySat-2

Skybox Imaging, Inc. announced it is adding an imaging satellite, SkySat-2, to its fleet during 2013 via a newly available secondary launch opportunity aboard a Soyuz-Fregat. Skybox has secured this launch opportunity by contracting with JSC Glavkosmos, a secondary payload launch provider within the Russian Federal Space Program that works on behalf of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos). The previously unplanned spacecraft will substantially increase Skybox's near-term imaging capacity and accelerate the availability of timely information products. Skybox can respond to new launch opportunities like this Soyuz launch because it is capable of building a high-resolution imaging satellite within nine months, thus demonstrating the company's capability to scale to a near-term, multi-satellite constellation. The satellite will launch alongside the Meteor-M weather satellite from the Baikonur space center in Kazakhstan. It will be a copy of Skybox's first satellite, SkySat-1, planned for launch in 2013 aboard a Dnepr launch vehicle.
