Master’s degree candidates at the Technical University of Delft’s SpaceTech session for the academic year ending in June have registered a company that would provide mass-market access to satellite imagery and value-added services from a fleet of 12 optical and five radar Earth observation satellites.

The proposal, registered in the Isle of Man as Mobeo Ltd., was presented at the final SpaceTech symposium July 1 amid presentations by private- and public-sector space officials that showed a continued lack of consensus on whether satellite imagery should be distributed free.

The vision is to offer developers and API to access the data, against which they'd build "apps" as I understand it.
