Dragonfly, fortified with relevant strong experience and heritage in the space arena, started its business first with earth observation satellite missions in 1980s before progressing to satellite launch in 2018 and subsequently to imager launch in 2020. It aims to ride on the Business Collaboration to tackle two high priority challenges of earth observation, namely, the quality of the images and the latency of imaging between LEO satellites and satellite operators.

 

Bryan Dean, CEO Dragonfly, said: “Dragonfly and Addvalue will primarily focus on companies from the earth observation industries to access data of high quality and precision for agricultural and environmental analysis. Dragonfly intends to continuously drive innovation through our earth observation solutions with the goal to provide our clients with daily access to high quality imageries of anywhere in the world”.

 

“The MOU with Addvalue is an important milestone in the acceleration of our plans for near real-time tasking and data delivery as these are services of particular importance for our sub-metre imaging systems,” added Dean.
