DigitalGlobe and National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) Agree to Modify Structure of NextView Service Level Agreement

Modification Provides NGA With Increased Flexibility as EnhancedView Procurement Continues

LONGMONT, CO--(Marketwire - February 10, 2010) -  DigitalGlobe (NYSE: DGI), a leading global content provider of high-resolution world imagery solutions, today announced that it has signed a contract to modify its Service Level Agreement, or SLA, with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, or NGA. The modification restructures the option for NGA to extend the term of the SLA.

The original option, if exercised, provided for a single nine-month extension of the term from April 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010. The modified option grants NGA the option to extend the SLA for three months on the same terms, from April 1, 2010 to June 30, 2010 with six additional options, each for a one-month period, with the last option term expiring on December 31, 2010. 

NGA requested the modification and the company believes this modification provides increased flexibility for NGA as the EnhancedView procurement continues.
