BlackSky, a provider of geospatial intelligence, satellite imaging, and global monitoring services, has announced it has been awarded a Study Contract through the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) to provide commercial satellite imagery.

The NRO is responsible for providing the defence and intelligence communities with access to high-resolution commercial imagery to support homeland defence, national security, disaster and emergency response missions enabling them to make informed decisions with confidence.

“Being selected by the NRO to participate in the study contract validates how BlackSky has quickly become a trusted partner of providing mission-critical global intelligence,” said Brian O’Toole, CEO of BlackSky. “We’re combining high-revisit satellite imaging with a unique analytic solution for site monitoring, all at a price point not seen before with traditional providers. We look forward to building a long-term partnership with the NRO and continuing our support of the US government’s existing and emerging security and intelligence needs.”
