GeoEye Satellite Clears Design Phase

GeoEye Inc. completed the last stage of design reviews for a National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency satellite program, GeoEye announced Thursday.


NGA approved the review for the agency’s EnhancedView program Jan. 26.


GeoEye said the GeoEye-2 satellite will be fully operational by 2013.


Carl Alleyne, GeoEye’s vice president of engineering, said NGA’s approval means the company’s system meets federal requirements and moves the firm-fixed-price program closer to completion.


The satellite will include an ITT Exelis-produced camera with 34-centimeter resolution imagery, used for tasking and image collecting.
