Who built Radarsat-2?
How does RADARSAT-2 improve on the remote sensing technology of Radarsat-1?
RADARSAT-2 provides several new imaging modes, such as polarimetric imagery (retrieval of full vectorial polarization information), ultra-fine (3 m resolution) beams, in addition to preserving all RADARSAT-1 modes. RADARSAT-2 uses a monopropellant hydrazine fuel.
How much did Radarsat 1 cost?
620 million CAD (2013)
What is RADARSAT-2?
RADARSAT-2 is a jointly-funded satellite mission of CSA (Canadian Space Agency) and MDA (MacDonald Dettwiler Associates Ltd. of Richmond, BC), representing a Canadian government/industry partnership [or PPP (Public Private Partnership)] in a commercial venture. In Feb. 1998, CSA awarded a contract to MDA to built RADARSAT-2.
How will clients order products in the new RADARSAT-2 system?
RADARSAT-2 clients will be able to order products by specifying their data needs and making financial arrangements with a customer service representative, who will, in turn, work with the order handling system to define and monitor the acquisition, reception, production and delivery activities required to satisfy their client’s needs.
What are the new imaging modes in RADARSAT-2?
RADARSAT-2 provides several new imaging modes, such as polarimetric imagery (retrieval of full vectorial polarization information), ultra-fine (3 m resolution) beams, in addition to preserving all RADARSAT-1 modes.
What is mission management for the RADARSAT-2 mission?
RADARSAT-2 mission management concerns management of and/or interfacing with these components to ensure orderly conduct of the mission to meet mission objectives (Ref. 36).
