Maxar Technologies announced on Tuesday that the company has received an Option Year 3 contract renewal from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) for a total value of $176 million, which began on Sept. 1st, 2022.
Under the renewal contract award, Maxar will support the Global Enhanced GEOINT Delivery (G-EGD) program and continue providing over 400,000 government users with unclassified, online and offline, on-demand access to high-resolution commercial imagery.
“As the provider of G-EGD, Maxar is proud to help advance the U.S. government’s long history of providing global security and humanitarian initiatives with geospatial data and imagery,” said Dan Jablonsky, president and CEO of Maxar as well as a 2022 Wash100 Award recipient.
Since 2011, the G-EGD program has enabled warfighters, first responders, intelligence analysts and civil government users to tap into Maxar’s 125-petabyte imagery archive and daily imagery collections for time-sensitive, mission-critical planning and operations.
During G-EGD Option Year 2, NGA developed a roadmap to integrate five commercial synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data providers into the G-EGD platform by the end of 2023.
“G-EGD has been instrumental in enabling NGA to provide unclassified access to satellite imagery for a wide range of U.S. government users and partners,” Jablonsky explained.
Maxar’s G-EGD team also offers monthly training webinars to educate government users on how to access and make the best use of the program. Click here to learn more.
