WESTMINSTER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Maxar Technologies (NYSE:MAXR) (TSX:MAXR), a trusted partner and innovator in Earth Intelligence and Space Infrastructure, today announced that it will open a new facility in St. Louis, Missouri, to support growth in several U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) programs.
The facility will be located in the historic Globe Building, in the heart of downtown St. Louis. Maxar expects 48 employees to initially staff the facility, most of whom are new hires that will support the NGA’s Global EGD, Janus Geography and SBIR Phase III contracts. St. Louis is the Midwest geospatial hub of the United States in part due to its proximity to the National Geospatial and Intelligence Center West facility, the T-REX Geospatial Resource and Innovation Center and several other commercial GEOINT companies.
“The establishment of our cutting-edge facility in St. Louis is a strong reflection of Maxar’s commitment to unlocking the power of geospatial data for our customers,” said Tony Frazier, Maxar’s Executive Vice President of Global Field Operations. “This new facility will provide our customers with easier access to better geospatial products and insights for success across the breadth of defense and intelligence missions.”
The operations of DigitalGlobe, SSL (Space Systems Loral) and Radiant Solutions were unified under the Maxar brand in February; MDA continues to operate as an independent business unit within the Maxar organization.
