Maxar Technologies Awarded Study Contract with U.S. National Reconnaissance Office for Commercial Imagery Capabilities

Posted: June 7, 2019

WESTMINSTER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Maxar Technologies (NYSE:MAXR) (TSX:MAXR) today announced that it has been awarded a study contract with the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) that will enable the U.S. Government to gain a greater understanding of Maxar’s current and future commercial imagery capabilities. The one-year contract will support the NRO’s efforts to further research and assess the U.S. commercial electro-optical (EO) imagery industrial base’s ability to task, collect, process and deliver satellite imagery.

As previously announced, Maxar signed a three-year extension of its existing EnhancedView Service Level Agreement (SLA) with the NRO in November 2018, reinforcing the U.S. Government's continuing demand for commercial imagery and confidence in Maxar’s current and future capabilities.

"This new study contract with the NRO, coupled with our recent EnhancedView Follow-On agreement, demonstrates that the U.S. Government recognizes the value of procuring commercial satellite imagery both now and into the future,” said Dan Jablonsky, Maxar CEO. "For nearly 20 years, Maxar has been a trusted partner of the U.S. Government, delivering commercial capabilities with superior quality, cost and reliability. We are proud to support the U.S. Government mission and look forward to continuing to work with the NRO as they increasingly adopt commercial imagery."

The operations of DigitalGlobe, SSL and Radiant Solutions were unified under the Maxar brand in February; MDA continues to operate as an independent business unit within the Maxar organization.

Small Business Spotlight - Blue Foot Engineering

Posted: June 7, 2019

Blue Foot Engineering ( formed with the mission to support small and startup aerospace companies. Co-Founders Amanda Haffey and Genah Burditt, both small business owners, recognized two things: a depth and breadth of rich talent exists in the hundreds of small aerospace companies and independent contractors in Colorado, and, dozens of startup aerospace companies are struggling to scale and achieve their engineering goals within their budget. We formed Blue Foot to match the two. Blue Foot identifies who needs the help and we bring the talent to them.

With Blue Foot we have created a single point of contact for a network of Subject Matter Experts and Senior Engineers that can augment your development teams, fill engineering gaps while you scale, assist in writing and reviewing proposals, and perform due diligence for investors. We pride ourselves in being able to put together a team that can design a spacecraft from concept to PDR in a short amount of time, for a palatable price tag. Meaning our network has experts in every discipline you need, reliability analysis, power, propulsion and GNC, structures, avionics, instrument design, mission analysis, and true systems engineering, to name a few.

Engineering aside, we all have businesses to run and budgets within to adhere. One of the smartest things you can do as business owner or program manager is to identify when it is time to outsource or bring in expertise. Blue Foot has the expertise you can call on, and can hit the ground running.
