DigitalGlobe Secures Contract With the United States Air Force
Upgrades to Eagle Vision Mobile Ground Terminals Will Enable Download and Use of High-Resolution DigitalGlobe Imagery by Warfighters and First Responders Where and When They Need It

LONGMONT, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 -- DigitalGlobe (NYSE: DGI), a leading global provider of high-resolution earth imagery solutions, today announced it will provide upgrades to multiple U.S. Air Force Eagle Vision mobile ground stations. This new capability will enable the delivery of the highest-quality imagery directly to warfighters and first responders in the fastest way possible.

Upon completion, the ground stations will be capable of tasking DigitalGlobe's WorldView constellation of earth imaging satellites and rapidly downloading imagery from the satellites at maximum resolution, including DigitalGlobe's exclusive 8-band multi-spectral imagery. In most cases, this capability will make it possible to task, download and deliver new, up-to-date imagery to end-users within minutes of collection.

Eagle Vision is a family of deployable commercial remote sensing satellite downlink and imagery processing stations. The Eagle Vision stations located across the world collect imagery from commercial satellites that are used for intelligence preparation of the battle space; mission planning and rehearsal; predictive battle space awareness; battle damage assessment; natural disasters and catastrophic events. The system ensures that U.S. forces and first responders have current, relevant, high-resolution imagery of areas of interest that can be exploited and delivered quickly. Eagle Vision stations have provided planning and mission support to combat operations since 1994, including Operations Allied Force, Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. In addition, the program has also aided natural disaster relief and humanitarian efforts, including responses to the California wildfires, Hurricane Katrina and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

"The DigitalGlobe solution uniquely provides the U.S. Air Force the ability to task and downlink best-in-class commercial panchromatic and 8-band multi-spectral imagery," said James "Snake" Clark (SES) of the United States Air Force, Eagle Vision program. "Under this new contract, DigitalGlobe's imagery hardware combined with our mobile stations will help support many of our unique missions enabling us to get high-resolution imagery to the people who need it on the ground. It will also enable Eagle Vision systems to be compatible with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency's (NGA) commercial high-resolution program."

"We are very committed to getting geospatial intelligence into the hands of those who need it, and this agreement brings our imagery even closer to the warfighters and first responders on the ground," said Jeff Kerridge, senior vice president and general manager of DigitalGlobe's Defense & Intelligence business. "Working with the U.S. Air Force shows how versatile and helpful our unclassified imagery and superior delivery capability can be for a diversified set of U.S. government customers."

The U.S. Air Force is working with the NGA to leverage NGA's EnhancedView Service Level Agreement (SLA) for obtaining the imagery. DigitalGlobe will deploy the upgrades with partners MDA and Orbit Logic starting in early 2013, with the first terminal expected to be operational by the middle of the year.

The agreement was previously mentioned by the company on its 3rd quarter earnings conference call with investors on Oct. 31, 2012.
