Maxar Technologies revealed that it was awarded multiple contracts in the first quarter of 2019 to provide Earth intelligence solutions to U.S. government agencies, with a total value of more than $95 million. As announced in January, Maxar is now fully domesticated in the United States.

Recent contract wins include: The U.S. Air Force awarded Maxar a multi-year contract worth more than $70 million to deliver a testbed for the development and integration of automated intelligence and machine learning capabilities into operations. U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) awarded Maxar a five-year Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract and three task orders under that contract for a program called the 3D Data Engineering Lab. The U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) awarded Maxar two delivery order contracts worth $7 million to continue providing updates and enhancements for its sophisticated change detection and land cover and classification solutions.

“These contract awards reflect Maxar’s unwavering commitment to serving the U.S. national security community with innovative solutions that meet their most demanding requirements,” said Tony Frazier, Maxar’s Executive Vice President of Global Field Operations. “Now that the company is operating as one Maxar, it offers an unrivaled portfolio of solutions that include spacecraft manufacturing and robotics, electro-optical and radar satellite imagery, industry-leading Artificial Intelligence (AI), and geospatial machine learning capabilities. All of these capabilities are built on a commercial foundation that enables us to rapidly address the needs of the U.S. government and other global defense and intelligence customers.”
