NGA Solicits Commercially Available GEOINT Data Under Luno Program

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency plans to use commercially available Earth observation data for its Luno program.

According to an NGA request for proposals, the program aims to use commercial satellite imagery and data analytics to improve the agency’s global monitoring capabilities. NGA also shared that under Luno, it intends to procure products, data and services from unclassified commercial GEOINT or unclassified networks.

The agency introduced the Luno program in 2023 and solicited comments from the industry in the same year.

Responses to the RFP are due March 26, SpaceNews reported Thursday.

The agency has a history of working with private companies to meet mission requirements.

In the first week of January, the NGA awarded Maxar Intelligence a contract to provide imaging support to the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command. The company was tasked with using its Precision3D Data Suite to capture imagery under the combatant command’s area of responsibility.

In September, Royce Geo secured an NGA delivery order to provide electro-optical commercial analytics services under the Economic Indicator Monitoring program.
