[Via Satellite 03-06-2014] The European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) has ordered MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates (MDA) to provide Radarsat 2 information as a part of the CleanSeaNet program. This is the first order issued under a four-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) agreement MDA holds with EMSA.

The Radarsat 2, equipped with high-resolution surveillance capabilities, is used for marine surveillance, ice monitoring, disaster management and resource management. MDA will provide EMSA with Radarsat 2 information covering all European sea areas for use in detecting possible oil spills on the sea surface and providing information for maritime surveillance projects such as vessel detection.
