Remote sensing solutions provider DMCii has signed an exclusive agreement with the Nigerian Space Agency (NASRDA) to distribute imagery from the two new earth observation satellites NigeriaSat-2 & NigeriaSat-X that are awaiting launch.
The two satellites introduce high quality 2.5m Pan and 5m multispectral (4 band) imagery to DMCii’s product range with strip, wide area and stereo pair options available. These very high resolution imagery products will prove ideal for use by professionals in mapping and cartography, business intelligence, urban/transport planning, land cover mapping, forestry and demanding agriculture applications.
The two new satellites will also provide wide area 22m and 32m multispectral data continuity for applications that are already using DMCii’s imagery products throughout the world.
DMCii will distribute the imagery products to all customers outside Africa and customers in Africa will be managed by NASRDA.
DMCii was formed in October 2004 and is a subsidiary of Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL), the world leader in small satellite technology. SSTL designed and built the Disaster Monitoring Constellation with the support of the then British National Space Centre and in conjunction with the other Disaster Monitoring Constellation member nations listed above.
