MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. Secures Contract Amendment Valued at CAD 40 Million by the Commonwealth of Australia

MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. announced that it has been awarded a contract amendment valued at CAD 40 million by the Commonwealth of Australia to transition MDA's Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) services to Australia following completion of the currently contracted services in Afghanistan. MDA will provide the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) with UAV operations and related services within Australia through December 2017, with options for up to an additional three years. MDA's service supports the RAAF plans to further develop Australia's unmanned surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities. MDA has been supporting the Australian Forces in Afghanistan since January 2010 providing critically important real-time intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information directly to ground commanders.

Macdonald Dettwiler & Associates Ltd. Signs Two Contracts with EarthSTAR Inc

Macdonald Dettwiler & Associates Ltd. announced that it has signed two contracts with EarthSTAR Inc. totaling approximately CAD 10 million. The first contract is a multi-year extension of RADARSAT-2 distribution rights. In addition, the contract includes exclusive distribution rights for China, effective November 11, 2014. The RADARSAT-2 information will be used to support government and commercial users in China in areas such as land use management, environmental monitoring, subsidence monitoring, and disaster response. Under the second contract, MDA will provide a ground station able to receive and process data from the RADARSAT-2 satellite. The station is expected to be installed and operational in late 2015. The RADARSAT-2 satellite has global high-resolution surveillance capabilities that include a large collection capacity and high accuracy. The satellite acquires data regardless of light or weather condition, provides frequent re-visit imaging options, and is supported by ground receiving stations that provide near real-time information delivery services. This versatility makes RADARSAT-2 a reliable source of information for disaster management, maritime monitoring, deformation mapping and for other applications.
