DigitalGlobe has been awarded a $24 million satellite imagery capacity contract modification by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). This ClearView contract enables the NGA to acquire additional commercial imagery from DigitalGlobe’s QuickBird’s high-resolution commercial imaging satellite.

DigitalGlobe’s map-accurate imagery is used for a number of mapping and planning activities within defense and intelligence and commercial applications around the world.

In January 2003 DigitalGlobe was awarded a $72 million contract to deliver high-resolution satellite imagery to the NGA over a three-year period, as part of a ClearView contract not to exceed $500 million. In September 2003 DigitalGlobe was awarded an additional $9.8 million modification to the ClearView contract. In July 2005 DigitalGlobe was awarded an additional $6.1 million supplemental modification to the ClearView contract.
