MDA to Help USAF Obtain Essential Information

MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. ("MDA" or the "Company") (TSX:MDA), a global communications and information company, today announced that it has signed contracts with a combined value of CA$6 million with Airbus Defense and Space to modernize the U.S. Air Force's (USAF) five Eagle Vision mobile ground stations. Once upgraded, the systems will be able to receive and process imagery from the RADARSAT-2 and RapidEye satellites and enhance the ability of USAF to provide near real-time in-theatre access to essential image data.

Eagle Vision is a system comprised of five deployable ground stations that collect and process data transmitted from commercial satellites. In addition to supporting homeland disaster relief missions, the system provides critical imagery information directly in-theatre.
