Maxar to open new offices near geospatial intelligence site

WESTMINSTER and ST. LOUIS — Maxar Technologies Inc. (NYSE: MAXR) is preparing to open a satellite office in St. Louis, just miles away from a major hub for American intelligence gathering.

The company, which produces satellite imaging and supports space missions, said it would rent office space to house 48 employees in downtown St. Louis, according to a press release issued Thursday. The office is less than three miles away from the current and future campuses for the U.S. National Geospatial Intelligence Agency.

Maxar did not respond to a request for additional comment, but CEO Dan Jablonsky said the company plans to be fully moved in by the end of the year, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The NGIA collects and analyzes satellite images to determine combat scenarios for the Armed Forces and supports other agencies responding to large-scale disasters. The agency renewed its $44 million-per-year contract to access Maxar’s historical imaging library in August.
