Maxar extends NRO contract

On August 4, Westminster, CO-based Maxar Technologies announced the U.S. National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) has exercised the second of three, one-year options on the company’s existing EnhancedView Follow-On (EVFO) service level agreement.

In 2018, NRO added three option years to Maxar’s EVFO agreement under the same terms and value of $300 million per year to provide continuity of service potentially through August 2023. This second contract option year has a period of performance from September 1, 2021, through August 31, 2022. The requirements and funding for this effort will be transferred to NRO’s Electro-Optical Commercial Layer program.

“We are honored to continue our trusted partnership with the U.S. government,” said Dan Jablonsky, Maxar CEO. “Maxar’s high-resolution satellite imagery serves a vital role for the U.S. defense and intelligence communities, and we stand ready to support an expanding set of next-generation national security mission requirements.”
