FOR A BETTER WORLD

Maxar brings together Earth and space technologies that enable unprecedented capabilities to observe, analyze and monitor, and communicate across our planet and throughout the solar system.

Impactful partnerships

On-orbit assembly program with West Virginia Robotic Technology Center

United by a calling to advance space exploration and develop more sustainable solutions, Maxar has teamed up with WVRTC in our proposal to build and fly dragonfly, a revolutionary robotic in-space assembly system. This partnership aims to reduce the challenge of launching fully-assembled spacecraft systems, especially those requiring large, more powerful components that could elongate and advance mission operations.

Democratizing geospatial data for global development

Understanding change is difficult. But Maxar is easing the challenges of quantifying change to support our global development partners plan and mobilize more effectively. Here’s a look at how Maxar is helping to tackle human rights violations, study infrastructure needs, and more.


Mapping coral reefs with Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation

In just 40 years, the world has lost over 50 percent of its coral reefs due to climate change and other human pressures. This incredible story from our partners details how they developed a new, more cost-effective way to map reefs from space and track changes over time.



Space Safety Coalition: Best practices for sustainability

On September 18th, 2019, the Space Safety Coalition (SSC) issued the “Best Practices for Sustainability of Space Operations,” a document co-signed by 21 space companies. Dr. Walter Scott, Maxar’s CTO and founder of DigitalGlobe, shares his insight and support for legislation based on these best practices.


Passive cleanup technology for our oceans

Patches of persistent plastic are accumulating at alarming rates. The most notable one is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch between Hawaii and San Francisco in the North Pacific. Here’s how we’re helping our partners at The Ocean Cleanup take action.



Coordinated recovery efforts: Hurricane Dorian

In preparation of the storm, Maxar’s crowdsourcing platform, GeoHIVE, collected pre-event imagery from our Vivid imagery mosaic and overlaid OpenStreetMap (OSM) building footprints. With the post-event satellite imagery, 36 GeoHIVE users assessed 3,009 buildings in Abaco’s Marsh Harbor and on Green Turtle Cay in just over one hour.

Making geospatial data more accessible: Maxar and ESRI

“Maxar’s dedication to creating high-quality products allows us to continue offering ArcGIS users better and better satellite imagery for their analysis.
