Earth Observation Satellites

By observing the Earth from space, satellites provide essential information on ocean, ice, land environments, and the atmosphere. Earth-observation satellites help us monitor and protect our environment, manage our resources, and ensure the safety and security of Canadians. Satellite imagery and expertise is also used to support global humanitarian efforts and sustainable development.
