MDA launches ice monitoring service to support safe ship navigation PDF Print E-mail
Written by MDA   
02 May 2011


Richmond, B.C. – MDA’s Information Systems Group (MDA), announced today that its Geospatial
Services division is launching an ice monitoring service to support safe ship navigation in the Arctic.
MDA will use RADARSAT-1 and -2 satellites’ superior ice detection and classification capabilities
to produce ice information products that can be rapidly delivered in a variety of standard formats.
MDA will deliver the products electronically to ships and operation centres, through either direct
transmission or via a web portal. Customer-specific products can also be developed upon request.
Selected locations will be routinely monitored using the RADARSAT satellites. Initial locations and
time periods to be monitored include:
  • Peel Sound, North-West Passage, Canada – July through October 2011
  • Fury and Hecla Strait, North-West Passage, Canada – July through October 2011
  • New Siberian Islands, Northern Sea Route, Russia – July through October 2011
  • Kara Gate, Northern Sea Route, Russia – July through October 2011
  • Point Barrow, Alaska, USA – July though August 2011
