Maxar Intelligence, a provider of secure, precise, geospatial intelligence, today announced that it was awarded Phase 4 of the U.S. Army’s One World Terrain (OWT) prototype Other Transaction Agreement contract. The OWT program delivers 3D global terrain capability and associated information services that support a fully accessible virtual representation of the physical Earth through the Army network. OWT is a key component of the Army’s Synthetic Training Environment (STE), which provides a realistic, common and automatically generated global geospatial dataset for simulation based collective training, mission rehearsal and mission execution at the point of need. Maxar’s Phase 4 work is a continuation of ongoing engagement in the program, with a focus on delivering enhanced 3D terrain representation for STE Training Simulation Software / Training Management Tool (TSS/TMT) modeling, simulation and training capabilities. Maxar Intelligence has supported the OWT contract since 2019.

“Maxar is proud to play an important role in supporting the U.S. Army’s modernization initiatives through the One World Terrain program, a forward-leaning solution that enables more sophisticated modeling, simulation and training systems to optimize warfighter readiness,” said Susanne Hake, General Manager, U.S. Government, Maxar Intelligence. “This latest award reflects the unique value of our 3D geospatial data for military simulation use cases. Our data, derived from our Precision3D product, offers an extremely accurate 3D representation of Earth, including real textures and superior accuracy of 3 m in all dimensions.”

    Maxar’s recent OWT work for the Army has focused on areas including:

  • Enhancing terrain data attribution and conflation using open-source geospatial data.
  • Enhancing training areas using multisource collection, high-resolution insets.
  • Improving 3D terrain dataset fidelity and refining automation processes to generate realistic terrain for high-fidelity modeling and simulation systems.
  • Developing terrain data export capability for operational Mission Command Information Systems.
  • OWT is a component of the modernization initiative led by Army Futures Command’s STE Cross Functional Team, managed by the Program Executive Office Simulation, Training and Instrumentation and contracted through Army Contracting Command-Orlando.

Maxar is a trusted partner and innovator in Earth intelligence and space infrastructure. The company deliver disruptive value to government and commercial customers to help them monitor, understand and navigate our changing planet; deliver global broadband communications; and explore and advance the use of space. Maxar unique approach combines decades of deep mission understanding and a proven foundation of commercial technology to deliver solutions with unrivaled speed, scale and cost effectiveness.
