DigitalGlobe Merges D.C.-Area Offices

DigitalGlobe, a provider of high-resolution satellite imagery, reported Monday that it has opened an office in Arlington, Va. The Longmont, Colo.-based firm said the new facility will centralize staff from its downtown Washington D.C. Government Relations office and from its Tyson's Corner, Va., National Security Programs office. The former was established in 2003, the latter in 2004, DigitalGlobe noted. The Government Relations staff is responsible for DigitalGlobe's policy and Congressional lobbying efforts, while National Security Programs team members handle defense- and intelligence-related sales, business development and relationships, the company explained.
