The Berlin based satellite provider belonged to the Canadian company group that provides business-focused IT solutions. The change of name reflects the corporate strategy of the consortium and aims to strengthening its core capabilities and developing new technologies. BlackBridge’s solutions will now include satellite operations, ground station services, data center and geocloud solutions as well as global imagery distribution. The RapidEye business issues like staff, address, products, service and contracts remain unaffected.
