Tuesday, March 4th 2014


BlackBridge has taken over the operations of the RapidEye Science Archive (RESA, http://resa.blackbridge.com/) pursuant to an agreement with the German Aerospace Center (DLR). The project is funded by the German Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). RESA was initially operated by DLR’s Remote Sensing Data Center, aiming at supporting scientific research projects within Germany by providing RapidEye imagery free of charge. Since 2009, the RESA program has allowed Germany-based scientists to benefit from BlackBridge’s RapidEye archive, which currently holds more than 5 billion km2 of five-meter imagery.

The complete RESA data archive currently consists of approximately 20 million km2 of RapidEye imagery and is available to all registered RESA users through a cloud-based solution developed by BlackBridge. Researchers can apply for access to the RESA archive at http://resa.blackbridge.com/register.html.

BlackBridge’s project manager, Dr. Rene Griesbach strongly believes in the benefits of the RESA program: “This is the continuation of a successful DLR program that has proved to be very beneficial for the German remote sensing community. Now we are really pleased to announce that BlackBridge will continue supporting the RESA program by providing RapidEye imagery to the scientific community as in the past, as well as by running the operations.”

The RESA annual user workshop will take place March 5-6, 2014 at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Bonn. More information about the workshop is available at http://resa.blackbridge.com/ws2014.html.
