RADARSAT Constellation, the successor to RADARSAT-2, will use a constellation of three small satellites to provide greater coverage while minimizing service interruptions and is expected to launch in 2018.
RADARSAT International (RSI) was formed in 1989 to market, process, and distribute data from RADARSAT-1. It was owned by a consortium of aerospace companies consisting of MDA, Spar Aerospace, COM DEV International, and Lockheed Martin.
RSI provided Earth-observation data and derived information products from RADARSAT-1 along with data from other commercially available Earth-observation satellites including Landsat 4, Landsat 5, Landsat 7, IKONOS, IRS, ERS, QuickBird, and ENVISAT.
MDA GSI holds the operating license for RADARSAT-2 under contract from the Canadian Space Agency.
