RapidEye Partners With Lotus

RapidEye, the only geospatial solutions provider to own and operate a constellation of five Earth Observation satellites, announced today a new strategic partnership agreement with Taipei City, Taiwan based Lotus (H&R). The partnership establishing Lotus as the only distributor for RapidEye products in Taiwan was signed earlier this week.

"We are pleased to welcome Lotus on-board as our partner in Taiwan," said John Ahlrichs, Vice President of RapidEye. "The Lotus team has a proven ability to identify and serve the needs of diverse customer segments and we look forward to working together to develop and grow the market for wide area imaging programs in this area."

Ms. Rubia Chen, Vice President of Lotus, said, "We are very excited about being able to provide our customers in Taiwan RapidEye's image products. The additional Red Edge spectral band offered by their sensors provides a unique benefit for Agricultural and Forest applications. The wide coverage and daily revisit of the constellation also provides timely information for our customers in the mapping, disaster monitoring and control fields."

RapidEye's worldwide network of distributors continues to grow to provide customers an avenue to purchase RapidEye products in their own region and in their own language. You can follow the progress of RapidEye's partner team by visiting this.
