The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has awarded a potential four-year, $176M to Maxar Technologies through the Global Enhanced GEOINT Delivery program.

According to a Maxar press release published Tuesday, the new contract has a base value of $44M with three option years at the same value and will allow Maxar to continue providing more than a quarter million U.S. government users with online and offline, on-demand access to the world’s highest resolution commercial imagery.

“The Global EGD program has proven to be an essential capability for NGA and a broad array of U.S. Government users,” said Dan Jablonsky, CEO at Maxar Technologies. “With this contract, Maxar extends its decades-long standing as a trusted partner to the U.S. Government. We are proud to continue providing American troops, intelligence analysts and first responders with the information and insight to make decisions with confidence,” he added.

Since 2011, the Global EGD program has allowed warfighters, first responders, intelligence analysts and civil government users to tap into Maxar’s 100-petabyte historical imagery library and daily imagery collections for time sensitive, mission-critical planning and operations.
