MDA to Provide RADARSAT Information for Environmental Monitoring and Emergency Response Services

Richmond, BC, Canada, March 20, 2013—MDA’s Information Systems group (MDA) announced today that its Geospatial business unit will deliver RADARSAT-2 data products and change monitoring services to the Ukraine Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Ministry) to support environmental monitoring and emergency response services in key areas within the Ukraine.

Working with G.X. Satellite Communication Management Limited (GX COM), a local industry partner that provides environmental monitoring and emergency response solutions, MDA’s remote sensing data and services will enhance these capabilities and provide actionable information to enable the Ministry to monitor changes to sensitive environmental areas, manage on-going changes, mitigate negative environmental impacts, and to respond effectively when environmental emergencies occur.

MDA’s change monitoring service, derived from RADARSAT-2 imagery, can be used to detect deforestation, monitor mining activities, identify new infrastructure development in urban or suburban regions; determine flooding extent, and detect oil spills on water.

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 conditions, 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 multi-faceted intelligence, surveying, and monitoring programs. The unique high resolution wide swath beam modes available from RADARSAT-2 make it the ideal satellite for monitoring changes across vast areas.
