DigitalGlobe's WorldView-4 Satellite Enters Service After Testing & Calibration Phase Completion - top government contractors - best government contracting eventDigitalGlobe started to provide its first customer direct access to its Lockheed Martin-built WorldView-4 satellite Wednesday following the completion of in-orbit test and calibration phase.

DigitalGlobe said Friday it will add additional direct access clients to WorldView-4 service throughout this year and expects to provide satellite tasking and archive support to all customers in the second half of 2017.

WorldView-4 entered service nearly three months after it launched aboard a United Launch Alliance-made Atlas V rocket as the fifth satellite in DigitalGlobe's constellation designed to collect commercial satellite imagery at 30-centimeter resolutions.

The satellite will work to help DigitalGlobe meet other commercial use requirements such as the development of 3D models and country-scale basemaps.
