3D printing – A model Canada's RADARSAT Constellation Mission
2018-09-21 - The RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM) is the evolution of the RADARSAT Program with the objective of ensuring data continuity from previous RADARSAT missions. It consists of three identical Synthetic Aperture Radar (C-Band) Earth observation satellites that will provide daily revisits (on average) of Canada's vast territory and maritime approaches, including the Arctic up to 4 times a day.
RCM data will be used in a variety of areas, such as maritime surveillance, ecosystem monitoring, agriculture, climate change monitoring and helping disaster relief efforts.
