DigitalGlobe will update mobile ground stations for the U.S. Air Force to provide satellite imagery for warfighters and first responders, the company announced Wednesday.

The Eagle Vision stations download imagery from DigitalGlobe’s WorldView earth imaging constellation for use in preparing intelligence, planning missions, assessing damage and during natural disasters or other catastrophes.

Deployments will start in early 2013 and the first terminal is scheduled to become operational by the middle of that year.

Project work will also aim to make Eagle Vision systems compatible National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency‘s commercial high-resolution program, said James “Snake” Clark, the Air Force’s director for ISR innovations and deputy chief of staff for ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance).

Since 1994, Eagle Vision stations have provided planning and mission support for combat operations including the 1999 NATO air campaign in Kosovo and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The program has also supported natural disaster relief and humanitarian efforts such as responses to wildfires in California, Hurricane Katrina and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
