Under the second contract, MDA will provide a ground station able to receive and process data from the RADARSAT-2 satellite. The station is expected to be installed and operational in late 2015.

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 for disaster management, maritime monitoring, deformation mapping and for other applications.
