Upgrade to Remote Sensing Ground Station

Vexcel has completed of a multi-mission upgrade to the recently commissioned Apex remote sensing ground station in Santiago (Chile). The project is part of Lockheed Martin Aeronautic's Industrial Cooperation Program for the F-16 Peace Puma Program. In May 2008, Vexcel provided a complete, integrated, automated, Apex ground station to the Chilean Air Force's AeroPhotogrammetric Service (Fuerza Aerea de Chile Servicio Aerofotogrametrico | FACh SAF) initially configured for reception and processing of NASA's MODIS electro-optical sensor on the Terra and Aqua satellites.     Since then, the ground station has been operational 24x7x365 receiving, processing, cataloging, and disseminating MODIS image products....

Malaysian Remote Sensing Agency Signs RADARSAT-2 Deal

MDA’s Information Systems group has signed a contract with the Malaysian Remote Sensing Agency (MRSA) to provide RADARSAT-2 information that will be used to support a number of applications, such as agriculture monitoring and natural disaster response. MRSA has been using RADARSAT information to support various applications since 2003. MRSA has been utilising the recent access to RADARSAT-2 information to aid in the search of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.  The RADARSAT-2 satellite has global high-resolution surveillance capabilities that include a large collection capacity, high accuracy and wide-area coverage that is extremely useful in imaging the vast tracts of...

Experts to Train in Agricultural GIS, Remote Sensing

Yemeni agricultural experts will be called to a training course in Egypt on the use of geographical information system and remote sensing. The date for the course has not yet been determined. Under a cooperation agreement signed by Yemen and Egypt last week, senior agriculture officials of both countries signed the agreement to shore up the bilateral exchange of expertise on agricultural research, post-harvest techniques, growing greenhouse crops and integrated management of the environment and water resources. The two sides agreed on enforcing the recommendations of the joint agricultural committee made during its Cairo meeting on September 1998. The committee... (read more)
