THE GROUND STATION
Our ground station has a direct link to and from the WorldView satellites. It is located on the grounds of Germany’s national aeronautics and space research centre (DLR) near Munich.
European Space Imaging started when Mohamed El Khadi and Klaus Reiniger met by chance in an elevator. Klaus was trying to build a ground station in Germany and Mohamed had recently built one in the United Arab Emirates – it was a meeting that would launch Europe into a whole new space.
European Space Imaging Established
Starting with just one employee in Munich, Germany, we were the first European company to have direct access to the Space Imaging satellite constellation.
Common Agricultural Policy
We began working with the European Commission and Joint Research Centre to deliver very high resolution satellite imagery for the CAP checks.
WorldView Global Alliance
In partnership with DigitalGlobe and Space Imaging Middle East we formed the WorldView Global Alliance, to ensure we could continue delivering the highest resoltuion satellite data available.
Constellation Direct Access Facility
We made a significant investment in the antenna at the ground station in Munich, which now allows us a direct uplink and downlink to all the WorldView satellites.
