RADARSAT-2: Canada's eye in the sky

2017-12-14 - Launched in December 2007, Canada's RADARSAT-2 is an Earth observation satellite that enhances marine surveillance, ice and environmental monitoring, disaster and resource management and mapping in Canada and around the world.

MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. owns and operates the satellite and ground segment. The Canadian Space Agency helped fund the construction and launch of the satellite and recovers this investment through the supply of RADARSAT-2 data to the Government of Canada during the lifetime of the mission.
