resources management, construction & development, media & entertainment disaster response
management, defense & intelligence and conservation & research among others. Geospatial
technology, energy and natural resource management are emerging as promising applications
for satellite imaging industry. These three segments together accounted for approximately

in order to support national security reconnaissance activities, climate change research,
weather prediction, and land management activities. Growth of the commercial satellite
imagery is driven by increasing demand from defense sector, predominantly by countries
with large imagery intelligence (IMINT) requirements. Currently, due to rising terrorism
concerns, defense and intelligence departments all over the world are seeking ways to
support their security initiatives using satellite imagery.
