EUSI currently provides VHR optical data to the GMES programme from DigitalGlobe's satellite constellation, which consists of WorldView-1, WorldView-2, and QuickBird. The imagery supports a range of services for monitoring the environment and supporting civil security activities at the European, national, and regional levels. Particularly for GMES emergency services like SAFER or GMOSAIC, an instant tasking option for VHR optical data is crucial for immediate assessments and can be fully supported through EUSI using the company's local WorldView ground station, and through its close connection with the WorldView Global Alliance partner DigitalGlobe.
