Umbra has been awarded a $950,000,000 ceiling indefinite-delivery/
This contract is part of a multi-award, multi-level security effort to provide development and operation of systems as a unified force across all domains — air, land, sea, space, cyber, and electromagnetic spectrum — in an open architecture family of systems that enables capabilities via multiple integrated platforms.
“The contract vehicle has a lot of potential and is a great opportunity for Umbra. The initial award is small compared to our other government contracts but this is a positive signal and it offers an avenue for the government to get familiar with our capabilities,” said Umbra co-founder Gabe Dominocielo.
Umbra was awarded the contract alongside industry leaders including Boeing (NYSE: BA), L3Harris Technologies (NYSE: LHX), Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC), Palantir (NYSE: PLTR), and Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) who were previously awarded their own IDIQ contracts. Umbra was the only radar satellite provider announced in the most recent cohort.
An Umbra satellite is equipped with a powerful Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) payload, capable of seeing at night and through dense clouds to generate the highest-resolution radar images ever sold on the commercial market. Umbra is excited to participate in this multi-domain systems integration effort and hopes to make meaningful contributions to U.S. national security objectives.
Headquartered in Santa Barbara, Umbra is a technology company launching a constellation of next-generation microsatellites that can generate high-resolution images day and night, regardless of weather conditions, for timely delivery to customers through our direct tasking platform Canopy. We empower customers by offering them access to high-quality, affordable data to help solve the complex business and security challenges of today and the future.
