Exelis will deploy imaging analysis technology for Skybox Imaging as part of an initiative to obtain satellite images of the Earth.
The ENVI program is designed to analyze images from the SkySat-1 that will be used for applications such as climate monitoring, disaster response, environment and resource management and national security, Exelis said Tuesday.
Richard Cooke, vice president and general manager for geospatial intelligence solutions at Exelis, said the company aims to provide support for geospatial data and other data types in order to use them as information sources.
Skybox and Exelis also aim to use the satellite and technology for industries such as insurance fraud mitigation, mining productivity and urban and commercial planning.
