RADARSAT-2: Contract extended for India

One of the first images acquired with Radarsat: Ross Island, Alaska, in 1997.

On 12 August 2014, MDA’s Information Systems group (MDA) signed a contract to continue to provide RADARSAT satellite data to the National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC) of India.

This agreement, valid until June 2015, represents for MDA the continuation of a long-term relationship with NRSC, as well as with the Indian Space Research Organisation ISRO and the Government of India, as India has been using RADARSAT information since 1998.
