AIRBUS DEFENCE AND SPACE RECEIVES U.S. AIR FORCE CONTRACT FOR FIVE EAGLE VISION STATIONS
Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Source: Airbus Group

TOULOUSE, France - Airbus Defence and Space has been awarded a contract for system evolution and maintenance of the U.S. Air Force's five Eagle Vision stations until 2019. Systems evolutions are related to foot print reduction (transit cases versus shelter), smaller antenna dishes and integration of new satellites. The sustainment of the system covers 24/7 support, failure corrections with workaround solutions, spares management, preventive maintenance, training and support during deployments.

Eagle Vision is the world's first lightweight deployable, commercial satellite imagery downlink ground system. It provides the users with a unique combination of optical, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), medium and very high resolution capabilities supporting wartime operations, natural disaster relief operations and Homeland Defense preparations. The use of commercial satellites allows the data to be freely shared among the allied forces.

Today, the system is in its 4th generation and receives imagery from SPOT 6/7, TerraSAR-X/Tandem-X constellations operated by Airbus Defence and Space together with Radarsat and RapidEye. Upgrades of Eagle Vision are planned for receiving and processing data from WorldView and Pleiades satellites.
