Radiant expands NGA machine learning contract

Maxar Technologies’ Radiant Solutions division has expanded a contract with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency to continue development of machine learning and crowdsourcing tools in support of NGA’s commercial GEOINT strategy updated earlier this year.

NGA exercised the 2019 option year and expanded the value for Radiant to $92 million over a three-year period. The agency issued the award against a Small business Innovation Research Phase III contract, Radiant said Thursday.

Radiant will work with NGA to further develop, prototype and deploy tools for analysts to process large volumes of remote sensing data in order to gain knowledge of global life patterns and search broad areas.

For this contract, Radiant will concentrate on moving forward its DeepCore computer vision software development kit and Tomnod crowdsourcing platform for NGA.

Radiant was acquired in 2016 by DigitalGlobe, which in turn was acquired by the former MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates last year to form what is now Maxar.
