Solutions for U.S. Defense

The strength of combined offerings for next-gen missions

Powering multidomain, multiforce operations

The tactical space layer and downstream technologies that enable rapid, confident decision-making from space-based information will be increasingly important in the joint operational environment of the future.


One World Terrain

Maxar is the prime contractor for the U.S. Army’s One World Terrain (OWT) program, which delivers 3D terrain and information services that support a fully accessible virtual representation of Earth through the U.S. Army network.

Mission data processing

Maxar was selected in 2020 to develop prototype mission data processing applications for the U.S. Space Force’s Future Operationally Resilient Ground Evolution Mission Data Processing (FORGE MDP) program. Maxar’s prototype applications provide rapid mission data processing and dissemination services for overhead persistent infrared data from the Space-Based Infrared System satellites.

Cloud-based GEOINT

Maxar’s Red Wing architecture, developed for the Air Force Research Laboratory, enables geospatial analysts to focus on addressing some of the most challenging intelligence problems by automating time-consuming workflows.

Tactical imagery access

The highly portable Maxar-built U.S. Army Remote Ground Terminal (RGT) provides critical GEOINT to warfighters in remote locations.

Superior Earth intelligence and mission architecture

Maxar enables the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and its allies to better monitor, understand and respond to global events, deter threats and ensure global security. Together, the many elements of Maxar can help the DOD meet its far-reaching modernization goals, maintain decision advantage, and rapidly identify and predict change.


High-resolution commercial imagery

Maxar provides 90% of the commercial satellite imagery used to create foundation geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) for the U.S. government.  With the launch of Maxar’s next-generation WorldView Legion™ satellites, our high-performance constellation will offer global revisit rates up to 15 times per day in addition to increased direct tasking opportunities and even more imagery at 30 cm class resolution.

Space communications and mesh networking

Maxar is a leader in Ka, Ku, X, C, S and L-band satellite communications and is deploying advanced communications for V-band in volume. We also provide resilient, self-healing space mesh networking using optical intersatellite links and space-based Platform-as-a-Service software operating on constrained constellation nodes.

Secure processing

Multiagency satellite interoperability is a vital function for assured, resilient, low-latency connectivity in support of national security. With Maxar, rely on secure, trusted multidomain collaborative operations across ground, cloud and space.

Spacecraft platforms

Maxar offers modular, flexible and cost-effective satellite platforms in LEO, GEO, cislunar and deep space that enable missions from Earth observation to communications and satellite-based augmentation systems. Compatible modules across key satellite characteristics—including power, propulsion, pointing, orbit and mass—operate on a unified system that enables custom configuration and structure.
