MappointAsia has been in the commercial space imagery business since the start of the industry in 2000. We operated the local ground station for IKONOS from the year 2003 until Space Imaging was taken over by GeoEye. We are proud to be the 2014 second place winner chosen from 170 submissions for Copernicus Masters Competition for innovative solutions with the entry entitled, Using the new high resolution satellite images with high frequent revisit time to curb illegal oil import by sea.

Super High Resolution Images From Space With Multiple Visits Per Day
The satellite building industry has long benefitted from major advances in the computer industry and miniaturization of electronic components. With the start recently of many private companies vying for the space business (http://spectrum.ieee.org/aerospace/satellites/9-earthimaging-startups-to-watch) and space competition for a reuseable delivery vehicle, the commercial space imagery business is no longer a domain of only large defense industry companies. Both Planet Labs and Skybox have proven that they can deliver high quality images at a price far below the current providers. With innovative products such as video, near real-time monitoring and multiple revisit time per day, satellite imagery and video will become more important and a more timely instrument for information and intelligence gathering.
MappointAsia (Thailand) Public Company Limited is planning to work with 5CI and Mach25 Corporation and its remote operation center partners in middle east and europe to bring 1 meter class capability to Thailand to better serve the region. The first of these satellites will be launched in 2017 with a planned constellation of 8 satellites. Mach 25 plans an innovative program of co-ownership of the space segments with ground station partners to maximize the capacity of the satellites together with a business cooperation between the ground station operators.
