Radarsat-2 Information To Be Used By European Maritime Safety Agency

 

March 4, 2014 By David Pugliese  - Defence Watch

 

MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. has announcedthat it has received an order to provide RADARSAT-2 information to the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) as part of EMSA’s CleanSeaNet program.

 

More from the MDA news release:

 

This order is the first issued under a four-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement MDA has with EMSA. The IDIQ has a ceiling of CA$7.5 million.

 

MDA will provide EMSA with RADARSAT-2 information covering all European sea areas, for use in detecting possible oil spills on the sea surface, and providing information for maritime surveillance projects, such as vessel detection.

 

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 condition, 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.
