IDIQ multiple award contracts

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) has awarded three indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) multiple award contracts (MACs) for commercial satellite synthetic aperture radar (COMSAR) imagery, data products and direct downlink services. Contracts were awarded to MDA Geospatial Services, Inc, EADS North America, and Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company.

Each contract includes a five-year ordering period with a guaranteed minimum of $10,000 and a maximum ceiling of $85,000,000. The effective date is December 29, 2009.

NGA, as the Department of Defence’s (DoD) sole procurer of commercial remote sensing (CRS) data, routinely procures commercial imagery from both domestic and foreign sources. NGA and its mission partners utilise commercial SAR data for intelligence, military and homeland security applications. The contracts improve NGA’s ability to provide intelligence in low light and bad weather conditions.
