SPOT Image Corporation announced that it has entered into an agreement with KAI Image as the distributor of KOMPSAT-2 products to customers across North America. Through this partnership, SPOT Image Corporation can now offer users very high resolution (VHR) satellite imagery for projects requiring the detail of a 1-meter image.

By signing this agreement, SPOT Image Corporation will promote, distribute, service, and support data capabilities for KOMPSAT-2 in the United States. KOMPSAT-2 is a 10-bit system featuring four bands (red, green, blue and near infrared), which simultaneously collects 1-meter panchromatic and 4-meter multispectral imagery to produce a standard 1-meter natural color product. The blue band capability of KOMPSAT-2 makes it an ideal solution for mapping shallow water, differentiating soil from vegetation and water penetration studies, such as corral mapping. This will allow SPOT Image to further enhance its current high resolution satellite offerings to a broad marketplace that includes defense, homeland security and commercial applications.
