Maxar Intelligence wins Precision3D Data contract from NGA
On January 4, Westminster, CO-based Maxar Intelligence announced that it received a contract to provide the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) with a Precision3D Data Suite bundle covering 160,000 square kilometers within the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command area of responsibility.
The commercial 3D data provided by Maxar will support the work of NGA’s Office of Geomatics, which maintains accurate 3D GEOINT products in support of a diverse group of military and civilian customers.
Maxar’s Precision3D Data Suite is built using multiview photogrammetry methods, resulting in highly accurate and detailed 3D models with 50-centimeter resolution and absolute accuracy of 3 meters in all dimensions. The accuracy is achieved without ground control and is consistent on all surfaces and terrain types, including building facades.
Precision3D data enhances situational awareness and decision-making, providing a precise, true representation of Earth that not only reflects the terrain in all dimensions but also provides an accurate foundation for additional data sources through Precision3D Registration (P3DR) georegistration.
Under the contract, Maxar will provide the following products to NGA:
- Precision3D Surface Model
- Precision3D Digital Surface Model (DSM)
- Precision3D predicted accuracy data
- Precision3D True Ortho
“Maxar Intelligence is proud to have secured this award to provide the NGA with commercial 3D data, which speaks to the NGA’s strong partnership with industry and the growing business case for utilizing unclassified, high-quality commercial geospatial data to support national security needs,” said Susanne Hake, general manager, U.S. government, Maxar Intelligence. “Precision3D data enhances situational awareness and decision-making, providing a precise, geospatially accurate representation of Earth that not only reflects the terrain in all dimensions but also provides an accurate foundation for additional data sources through georegistration.”
