September 25, 2015 — We’re excited to announce that the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has awarded DigitalGlobe the second year of the Global Enhanced GEOINT Delivery (Global-EGD) contract starting Sept. 1, 2014.
This renewal builds on our years of service providing the NGA and its customers with unclassified high-resolution imagery in support of operational planning, emergency response, and situational awareness.
Global-EGD’s products are available in ready to use formats with access to more than 4 billion square kilometers of imagery in our archive. Global-EGD also stays up to date by including the “Daily Take” which adds about 1.5 million square kilometers (more than double the landmass of Texas) of new earth imagery every day, ensuring that the most current data is quickly available. These daily updates are online within 2 hours after downlink and as fast as 12 minutes.
In the coming weeks, Global-EGD will also include imagery from the recently launched WorldView-3 satellite. This is the company’s sixth and most advanced commercial satellite.
DigitalGlobe’s Global-EGD solution offers analysts, decision makers and those in the field fast access (online and offline) to the latest insights and analysis, when they need it, creating a level of situational awareness previously unavailable.
The Global-EGD video offers more details about the unique benefits for our government customers. If you would like to learn more about the program and sign up for access using your government email please visit www.digitalglobe.com/egd.
