WorldView-2 to Launch

The October 6 launch of DigitalGlobe Inc.'s WorldView-2 satellite has been rescheduled for October 8. The launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base near Lompoc, Calif. was delayed two days because of delays incurred for the Delta II launch vehicle that will carry the satellite.

WorldView-2 is the third satellite Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp., a subsidiary of Broomfield-based Ball Corp. (NYSE: BLL), built for Longmont-based DigitalGlobe. DigitalGlobe provides high-resolution imagery satellites for commercial, defense and intelligence uses.

The imagery satellite should allow DigitalGlobe provide more-accurate images faster while more-frequently refreshing the images.

Longmont-based DigitalGlobe is provider of commercial, high-resolution, world-imagery products and services for defense and intelligence, government and commercial clients.
