BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Colorado-based space imaging company DigitalGlobe is showing off its new satellite before its planned launch in August.
WorldView-3 will be unveiled for news media on Tuesday at Ball Aerospace in Boulder.
The satellite will be shipped in June to Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, where it will be launched. Ball Aerospace built the satellite.
DigitalGlobe, based in Longmont, provides images for military and civil government agencies and industries including mining, oil and gas, utilities and insurance. The company currently has five satellites in orbit.
In March, it invited the public to examine some of its images for signs of the missing Malaysian airliner.
