Maxar Selected to Deliver Multi-Domain Analytics System for U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Westminster, Colo.  – Maxar Technologies (NYSE:MAXR) (TSX:MAXR), a trusted partner and innovator in Earth Intelligence and Space Infrastructure, today announced that it was selected by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to develop an analytics system for characterizing and tracking the behavior of vehicles in multiple domains at scale and in near-real-time. The contract was awarded and is administered through the U.S. Department of the Interior and is valued at $23 million with a five-year period of performance.

With thousands of vehicles moving in and around the U.S. on a daily basis, geospatial operators are challenged with sifting through massive amounts of data to characterize behavior and make important decisions. Maxar’s analytics system will augment operator decision-making by delivering data insights and automating time-consuming tasks, enabling operators to spend more time on mission-critical work.

“As a leader in Earth Intelligence, Maxar applies the power of machine learning for a range of applications in space and on the ground, enabling game-changing results,” said Tony Frazier, Maxar’s Executive Vice President of Global Field Operations. “Maxar is honored to continue demonstrating the art of the possible by applying AI/ML techniques to multi-source, multi-domain data to satisfy unique DHS mission needs.”

A key component of Maxar’s solution is the use of advanced cloud development technologies and methodologies, which will enable DHS to secure and rapidly scale the analytics system to support many geospatial operators and seamlessly connect with a variety of applications.

The company is building a community of creative problem-solvers who want to apply breakthrough technologies, collaborate across disciplines and partner with visionaries for the good of humanity. Explore open positions at maxar.com/careers.
