Maxar Technologies (NYSE:MAXR) (TSX:MAXR), provider of comprehensive space solutions and secure, precise, geospatial intelligence, today announced contract extensions with three long-standing international defense and intelligence customers.

The three agreements total more than $100 million and extend these customers' ability to directly task and download 30 cm-class satellite imagery to their ground stations from Maxar's current constellation under Maxar's Direct Access Program . This program 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.

One of the contracts provides a commitment to purchase direct access to Maxar's next-generation WorldView Legion satellites, the first of which are expected to launch between May 15-June 13, 2022. This is the company's second commitment for WorldView Legion capacity.

"Maxar's international defense and intelligence customers continue to rely on the unrivaled quality of our imagery to meet critical national security requirements," said Tony Frazier, Maxar EVP of Global Field Operations. "Our long-term partnerships and deep understanding of these customers' missions informed how we designed the WorldView Legion satellites, and we are very encouraged by the demand we're seeing. Increased collection capacity benefits not only monitoring applications, but it will also accelerate our ability to map the globe in 3D, understand precise change and deliver AI-powered insights on mission-relevant timelines."

Maxar Reserves May 15 - June 13 Window for First WorldView Legion Launch

Maxar Technologies (NYSE:MAXR) (TSX:MAXR), provider of comprehensive space solutions and secure, precise, geospatial intelligence, today announces it has reserved a window of May 15, 2022 - June 13, 2022 with SpaceX to launch the first two WorldView Legion satellites.

WorldView Legion represents both replacement and growth capacity for Maxar. The six WorldView Legion satellites will fly in both polar and mid-inclination orbits and provide 30 cm-class resolution. Higher resolution data has historically garnered better price levels given its value to customer missions. Adding satellites in mid-inclination orbits allows Maxar to collect more imagery in the areas with the most demand, as 95% of the world's population lives between plus or minus 50 degrees latitude. WorldView Legion and the existing Maxar constellation assets are broad area collectors that together will provide revisit rates of up to 15 times per day for monitoring missions.
