Seven companies have landed positions on a potential $476 million contract to provide NASA with Earth observation data from commercial small satellites.
The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract covers the provision of commercial smallsat data products and related services to support the space agency’s Earth science research and application activities, NASA said Monday.
The awardees are:
- Airbus’ intelligence subsidiary
- Capella Space Corp.
- Maxar Technologies’ intelligence division
- Spire Global
- Umbra Lab
The contract has a five-year base period with a six-month extension.
NASA launched a full and open competition for the Commercial SmallSat Data Acquisition program to procure data sets, data latency, area coverage and data usage policy.
