Earth observation satellites to be launched

The RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM) is Canada's new generation of Earth observation satellites. To be launched on June 12, 2019, the three identical satellites will work together to bring solutions to key challenges for Canadians. The data coming from the satellites together are going to provide wall-to-wall coverage over Canada's terrestrial land mass.

 

The satellites have capacity to collect data from across Canada in two or three days, providing almost real-time pictures of crop growth and soil moisture explains Dr. Andrew Davidson, manager, earth observation operations for Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
