Fire Fighters have as much information at their finger tips as Peyton Manning!

In a parking lot in the middle of Santa Clara, a group of professional look out over tablets and screens, review the effectiveness of their game plan, and plan the next move. and plan movements. No, this isn't Peyton Manning preparing for the Bronco's next possession. They are Fire Fighters and 1st Responders getting ready for a busy weekend around Santa Clara County during Super Bowl 50.
Leveraging a partnership developed while supporting wildfires across the nation, DigitalGlobe and Intterra have teamed up to deliver the latest satellite imagery directly to public safety and event managers so that they can plan and move resources in support of the many events occurring around Super Bowl 50.

We think we have a better view than CBS Sports

During Super Bowl week and on game day - the DigitalGlobe satellites will capture images of Levi Stadium and Santa Clara and move them into SITUATIONANALYST in near-real time:




Check out how the DigitalGlobe imagery seamlessly flows into Intterra software on all firefighter and first responder phones and tablets. And the resolution is so good we can spot the blitz before Cam Newton!

An easy partnership

DigitalGlobe and Intterra have jointly served the wildfire community for years together and it just made sense to team up together to support Bay Area Public Safety and Santa Clara County Fire Department as they track all the events and parties leading up to the big game. Next time you are hosting a National Security Event, we're happy to help you too!
