RobStrainDigitalGlobe and Ball Aerospace executives have discussed with Commerce Department Secretary Penny Pritzker the issues of an aerospace workforce and commercial satellite imagery regulations during a roundtable in Denver, Colorado.

DigitalGlobe CEO Jeffrey Tarr and Ball Aerospace CEO Robert Strain also updated Sec. Pritzker on how the WorldView-3 satellite could work to meet various demands, DigitalGlobe said Wednesday.

“Hosting Secretary Pritzker in our home state was a proud moment for DigitalGlobe, and we truly appreciate her leadership of the U.S. Department of Commerce,“ Tarr said.

“The change in imagery restrictions is timely with the approaching launch this summer of WorldView-3, which Ball built for DigitalGlobe,“ Strain said.

The WorldView-3 satellite, scheduled for launch in August, is designed with a 0.31 m resolution.

Ball Aerospace worked with Exelis, United Launch Alliance and Lockheed Martin‘s commercial launch services to develop the spacecraft for DigitalGlobe.
