Maxar secures WorldView Legion contract with international customer

On July 7, Westminster, CO-based Maxar Technologies announced a contract for WorldView Legion satellite constellation capacity through an expanded agreement with a key international defense and intelligence customer.

The multi-year, $35 million contract extends the customer’s ability to directly task and download 30 cm-class satellite imagery to its ground station from Maxar’s current constellation under the Direct Access Program. This program access enables defense, intelligence and commercial customers to access the world’s most advanced Earth imaging satellites, with encrypted downlinks, committed availability and data distribution rights that fit mission needs.

The contract will also provide direct access to Maxar’s next-generation WorldView Legion satellites once they enter operations, and it includes to Maxar’s 3D data suite, created from the company’s industry-leading, highly accurate satellite imagery.

“Maxar is proud to continue our two-decade partnership with this important U.S. ally,” said Tony Frazier, Maxar executive vice president of global field operations. “Maxar’s commercial satellite imagery and 3D data suite will enhance situational awareness and decision-making for the customer’s critical government missions.”
