Maxar will build 14 missile-tracking satellites for new warning system

Maxar Technologies will help build a U.S. missile-warning satellite system.

The Colorado-based company will supply 14 tracking satellites as a part of the Space Development Agency’s (SDA) infrastructure in orbit to assist with U.S. anti-satellite weapon technology, Maxar announced (opens in new tab) Tuesday (Aug. 9). The satellites will be manufactured by 2024 for L3Harris Technologies, which along with Northrop Grumman are building the first two tranches of the SDA’s constellation. Maxar’s new announcement refers to the second batch of satellites, which L3Harris aims to launch in 2025.
