RADARSAT-2 to keep an eye on marine pollution

SHARE

Canada: Collecte Localisation Satellites (CLS), a subsidiary of CNES (French Space Agency), will use MacDonald Dettwiler and Associates’ (MDA) RADARSAT-2 ground station and three years of RADARSAT information to avail maritime information solutions to support the detection of marine pollution and illegal fishing.

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. The station will be installed in Bali, Indonesia.
