MDA Continues to Provide RADARSAT Information in India

Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, Aug. 12, 2014—MDA’s Information Systems group (MDA) today announced that it has signed a contract with the National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC) of India to continue to provide RADARSAT information until June 2015.  NRSC has been using RADARSAT information since 1998 to support natural disaster and resource management.

David Belton, the general manager responsible for this business, said "We are pleased to continue our long-term relationship with NRSC, ISRO and the Government of India. RADARSAT-2’s capability makes it an ideal complement to India’s RISAT satellite for disaster management and resource monitoring activities.” Belton further added, “RADARSAT-2’s near real-time information with access to multiple beam modes and coverage options provides timely and actionable information.”

The RADARSAT-2 satellite has global high-resolution surveillance capabilities that include a large collection capacity, high accuracy, and wide-area coverage that is extremely useful in imaging the vast tracts of territory. The satellite acquires data regardless of light or weather condition, provides frequent re-visit imaging options, and is supported by ground receiving stations that provide near real-time information delivery services. This versatility makes RADARSAT-2 a reliable source of information in disaster management and monitoring programs.
