Canada invests in innovative mapping for global water survey

For Canada, which has coasts on three oceans, water information is invaluable.

The Canadian Space Agency CSA will invest 3.3 million CAD in the first worldwide survey of surface water. A Canadian company will develop an "Extended Interaction Klystron (EIK), a satellite radar component that will generate pulses used to gather surface information," the Government of Canada explained in a press release.
