Space-based imagery and analytics company BlackSky Technology inked a $7 million contract renewal with one of its existing international government customers on Friday to continue providing satellite monitoring services. BlackSky did not name the customer in the announcement.

BlackSky said the contract extension will give the customer the ability to continue drawing from multiple intelligence sources through the BlackSky Spectra tasking and analytics platform and extended direct access to its proprietary high-resolution, electro-optical constellation, as well as imagery and data from its partner constellations.

“With disruptive speed and economics BlackSky is delivering unparalleled value to multiple international ministries of defense with automated real-time high-frequency, low-latency imagery and analytics products,” said Brian E. O’Toole, BlackSky CEO. “Our software-first approach enables immediate and scalable access to commercially available AI-assisted tasking-to-delivery systems that ensure mission-critical intelligence arrives in-hand to operators and analysts in a matter of minutes.”
