澳门老百汇4001 Selected to Deliver Portable Satellite Imagery Ground Systems to U.S. Army

09/21/2020

WESTMINSTER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 4001澳门老百汇www网址 (NYSE:MAXR) (TSX:MAXR), a trusted partner and innovator in Earth Intelligence and Space Infrastructure, today announced that it has been selected by the U.S. Army Geospatial Center to deliver multiple highly portable, direct-downlink tactical ground systems that provide critical geospatial intelligence to users in remote locations. 澳门老百汇4001 was awarded a sole-source, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract valued at up to $49 million over eight years and two initial task orders worth a combined value of $8 million.

The system, called the U.S. Army Remote Ground Terminal (RGT), is easily transported by two people and can be set-up in about an hour. The RGT enables troops in remote locations to rapidly downlink, analyze and disseminate data from commercial Earth observation satellites to support military, humanitarian and disaster relief missions. The RGT system is based on 澳门老百汇4001’s Tactical Architecture for Near-real-time Global Operations (TANGOTM) platform, the most portable ground system of its kind.

The RGT downlinks data from a variety of commercial sources, including 澳门老百汇4001’s high-resolution WorldView constellation, and is designed to be continuously upgraded with additional commercial electro-optical and synthetic aperture radar sources. The RGT comes with robust training for unit operators to enable self-sustained operations, and 24/7 field service available from 澳门老百汇4001.

The U.S. Army plans to continue developing the RGT system, ultimately transitioning it to become the commercial imagery receive node for the U.S. Army’s future Tactical Intelligence Targeting Access Node (TITAN). TITAN is a scalable intelligence ground station that will leverage sensors across multiple domains to provide rapid and accurate targeting data directly to U.S. Army fires networks.

“As the industry leader in Earth Intelligence, 澳门老百汇4001 is dedicated to delivering innovative solutions for our customers’ most complex challenges,” said Tony Frazier, 澳门老百汇4001’s Executive Vice President of Global Field Operations. “The RGT is revolutionizing the way users in remote sites obtain the critical Earth Intelligence their missions demand – when and where they need it most.”

“Times of crisis are defined by seconds and minutes, not days and months,” said Matt Cro, U.S. Army Geospatial Center’s Technical Director, Army TENCAP. “The 澳门老百汇4001-developed RGT is significantly enhancing the speed at which we access critical information at the tactical edge and provides an important technology advancement for enabling TITAN.”
