Engineering the future
Maxar is powered by a diverse body of data scientists, engineers, analysts, roboticists, and creative problem-solvers who work on a wide range of programs. Here's a look at some of our current endeavors and achievements.
The Hubble Space Telescope and the International Space Station only exist in their current form due to robotic technology powered by MDA, a Canadian subsidiary of Colorado space giant Maxar. Robot arms maintained or built these essential cosmos facilities, and soon could go much further.
That’s because Maxar wants to bring the same skills into a whole new field...
“Whether I’m working on solutions to enhance humanity’s exploration of Mars or the moon, or keeping the globe connected, the work we do has a real, measurable impact on the world, and that keeps me driven,” Neetha Iyer, Senior Director of Advanced Systems at Maxar, shares her story with Woman Engineer magazine.
"Achieving this AWS Public Safety and Disaster Response Competency status is the latest evolution of Maxar’s long-term partnership with AWS. Our team is dedicated to helping our public sector partners and customers ensure timely and effective response to disasters by leveraging Maxar Earth imagery and analytics solutions powered by AWS.”

In 2017, the UN General Assembly adopted an indicator framework and assigned more defined targets to make the goals more concrete and measurable. While a few countries are on track to meet SDG targets, many more are not and may or may not know it.
How do these organizations measure and document success?
