SST Software will no longer offer access to new 2012 RapidEye imagery products. The following statement was issued by SST’s Jeremy Bale, marketing director:
Recent restructuring has brought new ownership and direction to RapidEye. After months of discussions, SST Software and RapidEye have decided to part ways. RapidEye acquired imagery from 2010 and 2011 will remain available via Summit Professional, but SST Software will not have access to 2012 RapidEye products. We find ourselves saddened at this turn of events and disappointed that our vision has encountered this setback here at the beginning of this strong growing season.
Believing that we can provide the most efficient and integrated image delivery solution in the market we are eager and committed to ensuring our users will again have access to in-season data in the near future. With an intense focus on securing a new source we have entered conversations with another in-season imagery provider, possibly announcing a partnership in the coming weeks. We recognize the unfortunate timing of this message and inconveniences that may arise. Know there is none more disappointed with the status of our imagery solution than the team at SST Software. Soon, we will be back on track with a committed provider able to acquire images globally, with repetition and substantially greater coverage.
At the onset, our goal was to build a delivery solution better than any other, one that provided an easy, seamless opportunity to search for, review, and purchase in-season imagery data. Having accomplished that goal we stand committed to this offering, diligently pursuing an alternative imagery source that will strengthen the availability of information products for our customers and their growers.
