RADARSAT-2 Imagery Available in Support of Typhoon Haiyan

Responding to this event will be a priority for the region, and RADARSAT-2 products and imagery are ideally suited to provide information about the situation on the ground. The RADARSAT-2 Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite enables customers to get the imagery they need to understand the impact of a storm. SAR is unaffected by weather or darkness, and can acquire imagery regardless of the cloud cover. SAR is also ideally suited to identify water levels and can identify flooding with a high degree of accuracy.

MDA has an extensive archive of RADARSAT-2 SAR imagery over the Philippines, and has a series of acquisitions planned over the next few days to help with assessing the situation on the ground. Both high resolution and lower resolution imagery is available, and MDA’s operationally-focused production team can deliver flood products based on these new collections.

Details on the current acquisition plans are available as a KML file for Google Earth, as well as in one of our Technical Proposals detailing the planed Ultra-Fine Wide and Multi-Look Fine Wide collections. For more information about the available RADARSAT-2 imagery for the region, or for a quote on imagery or flood products, please contact the MDA Geospatial Services Customer Support team via e-mail, or by telephone at 604-244-0400 or toll-free 1-888-780-6444.
