Airbus Defence and Space has announced the launch of One Atlas, a new satellite image basemap, which covers the earth’s landmasses with professional grade imagery. Available online, 24/7 and refreshed within a 12-month period, One Atlas provides customers within the defence, intelligence and security industry with easy access to cost-effective, high-quality and homogeneous imagery.
One Atlas was developed to bring demonstrable value to clients planning defence or security missions and operations, for example assisting the mapping, reporting and updating of positions, movements or risk areas, but also providing valuable intelligence when selecting transportation routes and access points.
The service offers a streamlined workflow, and the costs related to updating, selecting, processing and hosting imagery are drastically reduced. Seamlessly integrated into the customer’s system, One Atlas facilitates the sharing of data across teams or partner organisations, with no compromise on security or privacy. It also enables users to plan, map and locate their teams, assets or areas of interest, anywhere on the globe, allowing operators to devote more time to their core mission.
With One Atlas, we definitively reduce the barriers for defence missions to access our data, said Bernhard Brenner, Head of Intelligence Business Cluster at Airbus Defence and Space. We take care of everything: updating, selecting, processing and hosting all to make it easier, cheaper and faster for our customers.
