          Surveillance Missions

          Operational surveillance and monitoring solutions for civil, defence, and commercial applications.


          MDA is a world leader with decades of heritage in the design, development, integration and commissioning of entire space-based radar satellite missions including ground segments, operations and associated information services.


          MDA has proven ability to deliver highly reliable, low cost satellites and constellations that meet our customer’s operational needs for Earth and space observation solutions.


          MDA is a premier designer, developer, integrator, and operator of space-based Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Earth observation satellite missions.

          International agencies, national and regional governments, and commercial users depend on Earth observation satellites for current, accurate information about natural processes and human activity on the planet.

          MDA has met that demand with SAR satellites that acquire high-resolution imagery over large areas 24 hours a day, regardless of cloud cover or weather conditions. From RADARSAT-1 in 1995 to our current RADARSAT-2 mission, launched in 2007, and the three-satellite RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM), launched in 2019, MDA is a proven, reliable space-based SAR satellite developer and operator.

          Most specifically, MDA’s space-based radar solutions are uniquely designed for large area maritime surveillance and provide near real-time access to critical information to enable navies and other organizations tasked with the security and safety of maritime regions.

          MDA optical satellite solutions bring the power of space to customers at a lower cost.

          MDA develops, builds, and operates responsive, high-performance optical satellite missions at price points that enable government and commercial users to access the power of space-based information to support their mandate, or grow their business.

          Lower-cost optical satellite missions now rival large-scale satellite missions for ground resolution, enabling a wide range of applications that span environmental monitoring, food security, natural resources, logistics for transportation, and analytics to improve operations.

          MDA’s advanced systems engineering and experience with operational single- and multi-satellite missions provide the optimal balance between cost and performance.
