Solutions for U.S. Civil Government

Helping civil governments serve their citizens

MAKING SPACE ACCESSIBLE AND INFORMATION ACTIONABLE 

For exploring deep space, analyzing land classification or responding to natural disasters, Maxar’s technology provides agile, scalable and cost-effective solutions for government missions.  

MAXAR’S SOLUTIONS IN ACTION 

Open Data Program for disaster response 

When crises occur, Maxar supports local agencies and the humanitarian community by providing critical information to assist response efforts. Associated imagery and crowdsourcing layers are released into the public domain, allowing for rapid use and easy integration with existing technologies.  

Tropospheric Emissions: Monitoring of Pollution (TEMPO) 

NASA selected Maxar to host its pollution monitoring sensor, TEMPO, on a commercial 1300-class satellite. Scheduled to launch to geostationary orbit in 2022, TEMPO will provide hourly pollution reports on areas of 10 square kilometers across North America.  

Modernizing census maps

Mapping can affect economic growth, public health systems, crisis response and more. Maxar's satellite imagery and machine learning help governments efficiently prioritize areas of change, compare large areas over time and extract countrywide structures.  

Power and Propulsion Element

Maxar is developing the Power and Propulsion Element (PPE) for NASA's Gateway, a lunar orbiting command module that will support human missions on the moon and set the stage for deep space exploration. As part of the Artemis program, PPE will be the highest-power electric propulsion spacecraft ever built.  

COMMERCIAL PLATFORMS FOR SCIENCE AND EXPLORATION 

Sixty years of investment and flight heritage enable Maxar to support U.S. government science, research and communications missions as a trusted partner that provides advanced solutions to match timelines and budgets.
