Vulcan Expands Subscription to Maxar’s SecureWatch Platform for Maritime Domain Awareness


WESTMINSTER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Maxar Technologies (NYSE:MAXR) (TSX:MAXR), a trusted partner and innovator in Earth intelligence and space infrastructure, today announced that Vulcan Inc. renewed its SecureWatch subscription with a multi-year, multi-million dollar agreement. Vulcan uses Maxar’s cloud-based geospatial intelligence platform for maritime domain awareness to detect illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing for law enforcement.

Access to Maxar’s 110-petabyte, high-resolution satellite imagery library, daily imagery collections and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data makes SecureWatch a valuable tool for Vulcan’s Skylight to locate, identify and monitor illicit vessel activity. The actionable intelligence provided by SecureWatch’s near real-time satellite data enables Skylight to alert their maritime compliance users to suspicious vessel activity, enabling them to more effectively conduct maritime operations.

“Maxar is proud to supply Vulcan with critical Earth intelligence via SecureWatch for maritime analysis,” said Jeff Culwell, Maxar’s Chief Product Officer. “When WorldView Legion begins collecting sub-30 cm imagery in 2021, SecureWatch customers like Vulcan will benefit from significantly greater volumes of the world’s highest quality commercial satellite imagery over critical maritime domains.”

Vulcan first subscribed to SecureWatch in 2019.
