DigitalGlobe’s Global Enhanced GEOINT Delivery program renewed

(24 September 2015) DigitalGlobe today announced that the U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has executed the next year of the Global Enhanced GEOINT Delivery (Global EGD) program under the NGA EnhancedView contract starting Sept. 1, 2015.

This agreement builds on more than a decade of service providing the NGA and its customers with unclassified, sharable, high-resolution imagery in support of operational planning, emergency response, and situational awareness.

Global EGD products are available in ready-to-use formats, and the platform enables access to more than 6 billion square kilometers of high-resolution earth imagery to thousands of government users. DigitalGlobe keeps Global EGD current by uploading more than 1 million square kilometers of new imagery every day. The median delivery timeline for this imagery is less than four hours after downlink, and as quickly as 11 minutes. This next year agreement for Global EGD includes even easier access and expanded content for government end users in classified domains.

“We are proud to continue delivering the Global EGD service to the NGA and its end users around the globe,” said Jeffrey R. Tarr, DigitalGlobe President and Chief Executive Officer. “This program exemplifies the value that DigitalGlobe provides with our best-in-class commercial imagery that is unique in its ability to meet demanding U.S. Government requirements.”
