In September 2016, elseco was invited by DigitalGlobe to attend the Launch event of WorldView-4 in Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, and was represented by Romain Loubeyre.
The first day of the event comprised a Launch Mission briefing by the different stakeholders, a visit to the launch pad to view the Atlas 5 rocket from up-close, and a reception for all the attendants.
The second day was dedicated to the Launch mission and the attendants were transported to a site nearby the Launch Pad to witness the launch live.
Unfortunately, in order to ensure the success of the mission, the launch was delayed until further notice. It was nonetheless a great opportunity to meet our partners and to view the Launch Pad and rocket live, which is always a good reminder of why we chose space insurance as a career path.
