Lockheed Martin announced that it will begin integration of GeoEye's next-generation, high-resolution Earth-imaging satellite, known as GeoEye-2, with the planned delivery of its integrated propulsion system to Lockheed Martin's Sunnyvale, Calif. facilities later this month.
The start of vehicle integration marks the on-schedule progress of installation and testing of satellite components and subsystems over the next several months in preparation for the delivery of ITT's high-resolution imaging payload early next year...
Bill Schuster, GeoEye's chief operating officer, commented, "We are very pleased that Lockheed Martin has remained ahead of schedule and completed this next milestone in the development and construction of our GeoEye-2 satellite. It's remarkable that we formalized our agreement with Lockheed Martin almost exactly one year ago, and now they are delivering the equipment section for start of vehicle integration."
