Maxar Intelligence Secures NGA 3D GEOINT Solution Contract

The U.S. government is enhancing its geospatial intelligence capabilities by partnering with a secure GEOINT provider.

On Thursday, Maxar Intelligence announced that it had received a contract to provide the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency with a Precision3D Data Suite to capture 160,000 square kilometers of the area under the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command’s responsibility. Under the deal, the NGA will receive the Precsion3D Digital Surface Model, the Precision3D Surface Model, Precision3D True Ortho and Precision3D predicted accuracy data, Maxar said.

Susanne Hake, general manager for the U.S. government at Maxar Intelligence, said the collaboration between the two organizations allows Maxar to support the government in taking advantage of unclassified, high-quality commercial geospatial data needed to protect the United States from its adversaries.

In July 2023, Maxar introduced its Maxar Geospatial Platform, which streamlines data acquisition to aid the decision-making process.

Emerging, innovative technology has always helped the agency improve geospatial intelligence gathering. At the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation’s GEOINT Symposium in May 2023, NGA Director Vice Admiral Frank Whitworth III said the agency is investigating ways to integrate artificial intelligence into its workflow to improve maritime domain awareness and the ability to search for and detect objects of interest.
