Radiant Solutions leads a team of more than 25 industry and university partners with proven production capacity and innovation to provide content management of topographic and human geography data from a variety of sources. The contract has a potential 10-year period of performance worth as much as $920 million and validates Radiant Solutions’ trusted partnership with NGA as well as the value our commercial mindset delivers to solving our customers’ challenges.
