BlackSky Technology Inc. has secured a USD 7 million contract renewal to provide space-based imagery and analytics monitoring services to an existing international government client.

“With disruptive speed and economics BlackSky is delivering unparalleled value to multiple international ministries of defense with automated real-time high-frequency, low-latency imagery and analytics products,” said Brian E. O’Toole, BlackSky CEO.

“Our software-first approach enables immediate and scalable access to commercially available AI-assisted tasking-to-delivery systems that ensure mission-critical intelligence arrives in-hand to operators and analysts in a matter of minutes.”

“BlackSky Spectra is an industry-leading, data-agnostic SaaS platform that can fuse data from multiple sources and is well-suited to solve the diverse set of critical national security challenges our customers face every day. In addition to having a highly intuitive user interface, Spectra fits seamlessly into customer workflows and provides immediate operational mission value at scale,” he added.

The contract allows the customer to utilize multiple intelligence sources through the company’s Spectra tasking and analytics platform, including access to BlackSky’s high-resolution electro-optical constellation and partner constellations for all-weather, day and night, high-resolution imagery.

The US-based company provides real-time, space-based intelligence, offering on-demand high-frequency imagery and monitoring of strategic locations and events. It operates a commercial real-time intelligence system combining the company’s Spectra software platform with a proprietary low Earth orbit satellite constellation.
