Maxar Technologies’ (NYSE: MAXR) DigitalGlobe subsidiary has received a potential two-year, $600M contract from the National Reconnaissance Office to continue to provide the U.S. government access to the company’s WorldView satellite constellation and image archive.
The EnhancedView Follow-On contract has a one-year base term and an option year worth approximately $300M per year, NGA said Tuesday.
NRO awarded the recompete on Aug. 29 after the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency transitioned the EnhancedView imagery acquisition contract to the former.
The EnhancedView program seeks to provide authorized government staff with access to high-resolution commercial imagery derived from DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-1, 2 and 3 satellites to support homeland defense, national security, disaster and emergency response missions.
“The award of the EVFO is an important first step in the NRO’s strategy of embracing commercial imagery as a key element of our current overhead architecture and a critical and integral element of our future overhead architecture,” said NRO Director Betty Sapp.
