SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – February 11, 2021 - Upstream Tech, a mission-driven environmental technology company, today announced the signature of a reseller agreement with Airbus for the distribution of Pléiades and SPOT satellite imagery to customers of Upstream Tech’s Lens™  service.

Lens is an application that combines best-available satellite and aerial data with an efficient monitoring workflow, making it easy to monitor a broad range of properties no matter how large or remote. Land trusts, project developers, and conservation organizations collectively use Lens to monitor millions of acres of properties and projects around the world. 

“Having collaborated since 2019, we’re thrilled to expand our relationship with Airbus as we work to provide the latest data and insight to our conservation partners using Lens,” said Marshall Moutenot, co-founder of Upstream Tech. “Airbus has great geographic coverage and image quality that has helped our partners monitor conservation and restoration work across the United States. We’re excited to continue to deepen our collaboration with Airbus over the coming years in order to better serve our Lens customers.”

Through the agreement, Upstream Tech will continue to provide Airbus SPOT (1.5m resolution)  and Pléiades (0.5m resolution) data via the Lens application, and can also facilitate satellite tasking orders for customers with specific needs regarding timing of satellite data capture. 

“Sustainable management is essential to guarantee the preservation of our ecosystems. We are delighted that our satellites play a central role here, by allowing conservation organizations to regularly and precisely monitor the most remote locations, anywhere in the world,” said Francois Lombard, Director of the Intelligence business at Airbus Defence and Space.
