Industrial Base Assessment of Consumers of U.S. Commercial Electro-Optical (EO) Satellite Imagery

The U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), Office of Technology Evaluation, in coordination with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), is conducting an industrial base survey and assessment of the consumers of and organizations supporting U.S. commercial electro-optical (EO) satellite imagery. The principal goal of this data collection is to evaluate the current market behavior of both consumers of commercial EO satellite imagery, and providers of enabling technologies/products/services in a constrained U.S. Defense Department budgetary environment.

Your organization has been identified as a consumer of commercial EO satellite imagery and/or a provider of related enabling technologies, products and/or services. To begin, download and save the Excel formatted survey from the below Excel icon. For internal data collection purposes, a PDF version of the survey is also made available here. BIS will only accept Excel survey submissions.

If your organization has more than one U.S. facility or division related to U.S. commercial EO satellite imagery and finds it easier to submit individual business unit-level survey responses, please notify BIS. If not, BIS will expect one consolidated Excel survey response from your organization.

Such information is also protected from disclosure from Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. Also note that your organization is required by federal law under 50 U.S.C. App Sec 2155 to complete the survey within 30 days.
