November 6, 2014 – Denver Business Journal – Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. has struck a deal to build instruments and assemble 18 satellites for a startup that aims to collect data from Earth’s entire surface daily.

The Boulder-based aerospace contractor — a unit of Broomfield-based Ball Corp. (NYSE: BLL) — says it has reached a deal with Arlington, Virginia-based OmniEarth Inc., which plans to have its entire fleet of satellites — each the size of a dorm-room refrigerator — launched and deployed in orbit by 2018.
