United States : Maxar Technologies Awarded Four-Year Global EGD Contract by the U.S. Government for On-Demand Access to Mission-Ready Satellite Imagery
Publish Date : 12-Sep-2019
Maxar Technologies, a trusted partner and innovator in Earth Intelligence and Space Infrastructure, today announced that it has been awarded a new, four-year contract with the U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) for the Global Enhanced GEOINT Delivery (Global EGD) program. The contract, which begins September 1, 2019, is valued at $44 million for the base year and includes three option years at the same value that would extend the contract through August 2023.
The new contract will allow Maxar to continue providing more than a quarter million U.S. Government users with online and offline, on-demand access to the worlds highest resolution commercial imagery. Since 2011, the Global EGD program has allowed warfighters, first responders, intelligence analysts and civil government users to tap into Maxars 100-petabyte historical imagery library and daily imagery collections for time sensitive, mission-critical planning and operations.
The Global EGD program has proven to be an essential capability for NGA and a broad array of U.S. Government users, said Dan Jablonsky, Maxar CEO. With this contract, Maxar extends its decades-long standing as a trusted partner to the U.S. Government. We are proud to continue providing American troops, intelligence analysts and first responders with the information and insight to make decisions with confidence.
The operations of DigitalGlobe, SSL and Radiant Solutions were unified under the Maxar brand in February; MDA continues to operate as an independent business unit within the Maxar organization.
