DigitalGlobe imagery taken today can confirm a higher level of activity within the overall facility and significant activity at the launch pad specifically. This activity appears consistent with preparations for a satellite launch. Providing a virtual presence is what DigitalGlobe does best, by rapidly delivering shareable, high-resolution imagery to provide up to date coverage of events on the ground.
