INLINE to Distribute Satellite Imagery DataDULLES, Va. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 19, 2009 — IceWEB, Inc.™ (OTCBB: IWEB), www.iceweb.com, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, INLINE Corporation, and Spot Image Corp. have signed a commercial partnership agreement giving INLINE rights to distribute imagery data to the entire U.S. Federal and Commercial market.
“The strength and level of expertise that INLINE has shown in the geospatial market makes them an excellent choice for distribution of SPOT products in the United States,” said Alan Kittson, Spot Image Corp. Director of Federal/Civilian Sales. “The ability to feed our satellite data to high performing, purpose built INLINE appliances will assist Spot Image in our efforts to promote widespread adoption of turnkey imagery appliances in the marketplace.”
The Federal market has a strong interest in satellite-based Earth observation and is spurring the need for satellite imagery. The U.S. market represents one of the largest user-bases of SPOT imagery in the world. SPOT imagery is broadly used for many applications including homeland security, agriculture, geology, forestry, regional planning, education, intelligence and warfare.
“The 2 SPOT satellites in orbit (SPOT 4 and 5) provide images with a large choice of resolutions – from 2.5 m to 1 km. Because of this flexibility, they have become an attractive data source for customers. The ability to deliver imagery of any location on earth, within 24 hours, requires the ability to store and use that information effectively in support of any mission, be it in a fixed location using INLINE’s GIS appliances, or in a “fly-away-kit” residing on our MLP Portable GIS system,” explained John R. Signorello, IceWEB, Chief Executive Officer.
