Airbus has launched a new satellite tasking service ‘One Tasking’, for defence, intelligence and security application.
One Tasking service provides 24/7/365 access to Airbus’ high-resolution and wide-swath satellite sensors. A team of in-house experts ensures that any requested area is captured on time and in line with the customer's requirements, the company said in a statement Wednesday.
Airbus was the first to offer bespoke satellite tasking services – helping to support a variety of unique challenges, ranging from planning operations and mission deployments to regular intelligence gathering and responding to crisis situations. Today, with One Tasking, Airbus is resetting the bar once again, with a capability to only deliver the very best results.
"We wanted to create a product which was unlike anything already on the market and truly focused on the defence and intelligence industry and its specific needs," said Bernhard Brenner, Head of Intelligence Business Cluster at Airbus Defence and Space.”
A variety of tailored One Tasking solutions are also available to meet specific industry needs and requirements, OneDay: Risk-free imagery acquisition for a specific day. Weather forecast will be sent 24 hours before the acquisition date, enabling customers to confirm, postpone or even cancel a tasking request, at no cost.
OneNow: Immediate and useful imagery in an instant. Satellites are tasked to deliver valuable insights in the shortest possible timeframe.
OnePlan: Qualified coverage within an agreed timeframe. The qualified coverage is agreed and delivered according to customer selected timeframes and dates to meet specific project milestones.
OneSeries: Repeated coverage. Imagery is acquired and delivered on a regular basis to monitor long-term changes or highly dynamic situations.
