National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Awards $24 Million ClearView Contract to DigitalGlobe

DigitalGlobe (Longmont, Calif.) has been awarded a $24 million satellite imagery capacity contract modification by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. This ClearView contract enables the NGA to acquire additional commercial imagery from DigitalGlobe’s QuickBird’s high resolution commercial imaging satellite.

DigitalGlobe’s map-accurate imagery is used for a number of mapping and planning activities within defense and intelligence and commercial applications around the world.

“This award by the NGA further illustrates the organization’s commitment to reliance on the U.S. commercial satellite imaging industry,” said Jeff Kerridge, general manager of DigitalGlobe’s defense and intelligence business unit. “We look forward to continuing to serve the NGA with the world’s highest resolution commercial satellite imagery.”

In January 2003 DigitalGlobe was awarded a $72 million contract to deliver high-resolution satellite imagery to the NGA over a three-year period, as part of a ClearView contract not to exceed $500 million. In September 2003 DigitalGlobe was awarded an additional $9.8 million modification to the ClearView contract. In July 2005 DigitalGlobe was awarded an additional $6.1 million supplemental modification to the ClearView contract.
