Launched in December 2007, Canada's next-generation commercial radar satellite offers powerful technical advancements that will enhance marine surveillance, ice monitoring, disaster management, environmental monitoring, resource management and mapping in Canada and around the world.
This project represents a unique collaboration between government and industry. MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (MDA) will own and operate the satellite and ground segment. The Canadian Space Agency helps fund the construction and launch of the satellite and will recover this investment through the supply of RADARSAT-2 data to the Government of Canada during the lifetime of the mission.
