MDA to provide ground station solution for USAF program
MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (TSX: MDA), a provider of essential information solutions, announced today that it has signed a multi-million dollar contract with DigitalGlobe, Inc. to develop a solution to allow two of the U.S. Air Force's (USAF) mobile ground systems, called Eagle Vision, to receive and process imagery from WorldView-1 and WorldView-2 satellites. MDA's solution will enhance the USAF's ability to provide near real-time in-theatre access to essential image data, on a daily basis.
MDA has previously provided multi-sensor solutions to the USAF that included data access from the RADARSAT-2 satellite since 2009, and RapidEye images since 2010.
