MDA to Provide RADARSAT-2 Ground Station Solution to Support Land and Maritime Applications

RICHMOND, BC, July 7, 2015—MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. ("MDA" or the "Company") (TSX:MDA), a global communications and information company, today announced that it has been awarded three contracts with the Malaysian Remote Sensing Agency (MRSA), an agency under the purview of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, Malaysia (MOSTI). Under the contracts, MDA will provide:

  • A RADARSAT-2 ground station, scheduled to be installed and operational in early 2016, with the capability to receive and process RADARSAT-2 information for three years,
  • One year of RADARSAT-2 information to be supplied in advance of the station becoming operational; and,
  • Training to develop products that provide information to support a variety of applications.

MRSA will use the information to support a number of applications, such as flood monitoring, maritime and agricultural monitoring, natural resource management, and in developing digital elevation products useful for a variety of mapping applications. RADARSAT information has been incorporated into MRSA's monitoring operations since 2003.

The RADARSAT-2 satellite has global high-resolution surveillance capabilities that include a large collection capacity and high accuracy. 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 for disaster management, maritime monitoring, deformation mapping and for other applications.
