TYSONS CORNER, VA, February 25, 2020 — Tony Frazier, executive vice president of global field operations at Maxar Technologies (NYSE: MAXR), said government agencies increasingly turn to commercial platforms, imagery and services to perform missions, ExecutiveBiz reported Feb. 19.

He wrote in a guest piece for MilsatMagazine the company has helped the U.S. Air Force and Special Operations Command to incorporate computer vision and artificial intelligence/machine learning tools into various tasks such as mapping and intelligence processing.

Frazier, a four-time Wash100 inductee, added that Maxar provides satellite imaging expertise to the National Reconnaissance Office and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

In addition, NASA chose the company to build the power and propulsion element of a lunar space station, dubbed Gateway, under a potential $375M contract awarded in May 2019

Maxar also seeks to increase imagery resolution capacity through the WorldView Legion constellation.

"Using our extensive expertise in AI/ML, data science, big data integration and domain-specific analytics, we gather content from many sources, sensors and providers, and then combine that content with powerful geospatial analytics to help customers be more predictive in their critical decisions and more productive in their daily operations," he added.
