Maxar Technologies [MAXR] on Wednesday said it has received a potential $192 million contract from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) to provide U.S. allies and partners with commercial satellite imagery and related products over the next five years.
Maxar listed four products it will leverage under the Foreign Commercial Imagery Program that will include electro-optical, synthetic aperture radar (SAR), and 3D products. The products include SecureWatch, which provides on-demand access to recent high accuracy and high-resolution satellite imagery and analytics; the Rapid Access Program, which provides the highest commercially available collection priority; Precision3D, which provides 3D imaging to enhance situational awareness and decision-making; and Commercial SAR imagery for situational awareness in all weather and light conditions.
Maxar’s commercial satellite technology is based on electro-optical imaging. The company works with third-party geospatial data providers for other imaging such as SAR.
“Maxar is proud of our more than two decades’ experience supporting the sharing of critical, actionable geospatial information with U.S. allies and partners,” Tony Frazier, Maxar’s executive vice president and general manager of Public Sector Earth Intelligence, said in a statement.
The NGA awarded the contract in late November 2022. The contract is a new business win for the company.
Maxar is a leading provider of commercial electro-optical satellite imagery to the intelligence community.
