USAF awards RSI with data acquisition contract for Eagle Vision Program

RADARSAT International of Richmond has announced that it has been awarded a one-year contract by the United States Air Force (USAF) Eagle Vision Program. The agreement, valued at $777,000 US, enables the USAF to routinely receive RADARSAT-1 imagery at its three Eagle Vision portable ground stations. With this award the Eagle Vision program will be able to continue providing all-weather imaging capability to the USAF’s global military operations.

Eagle Vision stations are deployable satellite receiving stations designed to collect commercial satellite imagery. At present, Eagle Vision 1 receives imagery from LANDSAT, SPOT, RADARSAT-1 and IRS 1-C and 1-D and it is being upgraded to receive QuickBird.
