Achieving Unexpected Victories on Behalf of Our Clients
ACCESS enabled ImageSat International to contribute EROS A high-resolution satellite imagery to the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum's permanent Earth Observation exhibit and compendium summarizing the history of satellite imaging.
Cooperating with the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum
We recommended to ImageSat International, then owners and operators of the EROS A high resolution imaging satellite, to contribute its imagery to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. -- the most visited museum in the world.
The Company had approached the museum without success prior to our involvement and told us the attempt would be futile; the imagery would not be accepted.
When we insisted we would prevail, the President of ImageSat at the time and a founding father of Israel's space industry said, "If you succeed, I'll eat my hat."
So, we engaged the Air & Space Museum and succeeded in our challenge to include ImageSat International's EROS A satellite imagery in its Earth Observation museum collection.
We also convinced the Smithsonian's editors of a compendium, documenting the history of Earth-imaging satellites, to include 10 EROS A images in their book. Among the images provided was one of The Point where the Three Rivers meet in Pittsburgh, PA (Karen's hometown), as a salute to her parents. (She was personally cited in the book's Acknowledgements...a personal coup for her.)
Let's just say, we did not hold the president to his promise!
