USA: Planet has announced that the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has exercised their option to extend our 2018 contract and renew for an additional six months and $5.9 million.
Through this contract, Planet will continue to bring unique value to NGA by providing subscription access to daily imagery over select areas to support mission objectives at the agency.
This is Planet’s third contract with NGA since 2016 and is an important milestone as we bridge the leadership transition from Director Cardillo to Navy Vice Admiral Sharp, demonstrating our ongoing relationship with NGA. We’re excited to continue this collaborative partnership as Vice Admiral Sharp outlines his agency’s priorities for the coming years.
Additionally, Planet is pursuing NRO’s 2020 commercial imagery contract, and continued engagement with NGA helps us further align around the needs of USG.
