Civil, commercial and defense organizations around the world rely on RADARSAT-2 imagery and geospatial information products to stay apprised of their areas of interest, regardless of weather conditions.
Because the RADARSAT-2 satellite can image through clouds and in darkness, its imagery is uniquely suited to provide reliable and regular monitoring. Flexible imagery resolution and coverage combinations satisfy a host of applications relying on change detection at various scales. RADARSAT-2 is owned and operated by MDA, DigitalGlobe's sister company, as part of Maxar Technologies.
MDA's RADARSAT-2 has the highest imaging capacity and the largest global network of ground receiving stations of any commercial synthetic aperture radar (SAR) mission, giving you fast access to near real-time geospatial data in the form of radar imagery. RADARSAT-2 was designed to be responsive to end user needs and serve operational applications requiring rapid delivery of newly acquired data.
See through clouds and darkness with imagery acquisition that is unaffected by weather or season
Industry best near real-time image delivery
Enable applications ranging from open ocean surveillance to ground subsidence monitoring
Maritime domain awareness
