MDA Sees Continued RADARSAT-1 Defence Business

Richmond, B.C. - MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (TSX: MDA), a provider of essential information solutions, announced today that it expects to receive over $3 million CDN from several long-standing defence clients for RADARSAT-1 information. MDA will renew agreements with two undisclosed RADARSAT-1 international customers, and meet the information needs of a U.S. agency.

RADARSAT-1 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-1 a reliable source of information in multi-faceted intelligence surveying and monitoring programs.

RADARSAT-1 data supports several intelligence needs such as mapping and 3-D terrain modeling, target detection and change-in-activity monitoring.
