MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. announced that the company’s Information Systems group has been awarded $1.15 million (CDN) to upgrade a satellite ground station in Asia. Information processed by the ground station from commercial satellites will be used for agricultural and environmental monitoring, management of natural disasters, emergency preparedness and assessment, and mapping. The upgrade announced will increase the ground station’s information processing capabilities, including the ability to process data from DigitalGlobe’s QuickBird high-resolution satellite.
