[Via Satellite 04-16-2014] DigitalGlobe and MDA will together offer a combined optical and synthetic aperture radar satellite data solution to their global defense and intelligence customers. The solution will allow customers to task and collect information using DigitalGlobe’s high-resolution Earth-imaging satellites, as well as obtain and process close to real-time data from MDA’s Radarsat 2 satellite.

“By combining access to Radarsat 2 and the DigitalGlobe constellation, our customers will see enhancements from high-resolution optical data applied to land and maritime applications, including change detection across national territories, wide area ship and oil detection, target detection and classification, forestry management and disaster recovery,” said Don Osborne, vice president of information systems at MDA.
