GeoEye Expanded Production Facility - 11/05/2009
GeoEye has completed an expansion, nearly doubling the production space, of its St. Louis production facility. A ceremony to mark the opening of the new space took place on 27th April 2009 and included a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by GeoEye's Chief Operating Officer, Vice Presidents of engineering and product engineering and many St. Louis employees.
GeoEye's St. Louis facility employs 83 professionals - many with advanced degrees in geospatial engineering, mathematics and geography. There are a dozen job openings to support the increased workloads. St. Louis employees generate advanced image processing products, engineering analysis and related services for the U.S. Government and other commercial customers. It can produce satellite imagery products from multiple sources including those acquired by U.S. Government satellites, GeoEye's GeoEye-1 and IKONOS satellites, and imaging satellites operated by competitors in the U.S. and overseas.
GeoEye is also expanding its production facility that supports U.S. Government customers within its Thornton (CO, USA) office near Denver (CO, USA). Together, both regional facility upgrades represent a 50 percent increase in services' production capacity.
