Maxar Technologies announced on Wednesday that the company will open a new facility in St. Louis, Missouri, to support growth in several U.S. National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) programs.

“The establishment of our cutting-edge facility in St. Louis is a strong reflection of Maxar’s commitment to unlock the power of geospatial data for our customers,” said Tony Frazier, Maxar’s executive vice president of Global Field Operations and 2019 Wash100 Award recipient. 

The facility will be located in the historic Globe Building, in the heart of downtown St. Louis. Maxar expects 48 employees to initially staff the facility, most of whom are new hires that will support the NGA’s Global EGD, Janus Geography and SBIR Phase III contracts. 

“This new facility will provide our customers with easier access to better geospatial products and insights for success across the breadth of defense and intelligence missions,” added Frazier.
