Maxar Technologies (NYSE:MAXR) (TSX:MAXR), a partner and innovator in Earth Intelligence and Space Infrastructure, has announced that it was selected by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to develop an analytics system for characterizing and tracking the behavior of vehicles in multiple domains at scale and in near-real-time, the company said.
The contract was awarded and is administered through the US Department of the Interior and is valued at USD 23 million with a five-year period of performance.
With thousands of vehicles moving in and around the US on a daily basis, geospatial operators are challenged with sifting through massive amounts of data to characterize behavior and make important decisions. Maxar´s analytics system will augment operator decision-making by delivering data insights and automating time-consuming tasks, enabling operators to spend more time on mission-critical work.
A key component of Maxar´s solution is the use of advanced cloud development technologies and methodologies, which will enable DHS to secure and rapidly scale the analytics system to support many geospatial operators and seamlessly connect with a variety of applications.
