The World’s Microscope from Hundreds of Kilometres Above.
Eyes on Earth since 1995
RADARSAT-1 was Canada's first commercial Earth observation satellite. In 2007, RADARSAT-2 was launched, producing over 75,000 images per year and 1,000,000+ images to date (2022), creating an archive of imagery that provides a unique perspective and insight into the evolution of Earth. In 2019, the RADARSAT Constellation Mission was deployed, using its three-satellite configuration for all-condition coverage.

Building on the legendary RADARSAT program, CHORUS, a collaborative multi-sensor constellation, brings together diverse and unique imagery and data sources, changing how and when we see the world.
- 140,000,000 km² — The amount of the Earth’s surface we've imaged
- 2 mm — The level at which we can detect topographical changes
- 10 minutes — The time it takes us to process/analyze raw satellite data into usable information for our customers
- 500 km — The widest imaging swath on the market
- 1,000,000 - The amount of RADARSAT-2 images acquired to date (2022)
We manage global missions at customer sites and in-house, drawing on decades of experience running Earth and space observation missions. If you need to know what's happening up there, we have a dependable resource down here.
With faster and more secure access to satellite imagery from a broad range of sensors, we showcase the Earth to customers worldwide.
High-Resolution Optical Imagery
- Supported WorldView, QuickBird, GeoEye, EROS and Pleiades
- Offers better views and closer looks with superior resolution
- Integrates direct satellite tasking and rapid revisit for faster downloads
Medium-Resolution Optical Imagery
- Supported RapidEye, SPOT and Landsat
- Includes multi-satellite constellations with super revisit for more coverage
- Delivers a more complete story with multi-spectral imaging
Synthetic Aperture Radar Imagery
- Supported RADARSAT, Sentinel and TerraSAR-X
- Provides all-weather imaging in multiple imaging modes
- Superior maritime capability
With tools that detect change, identify objects, classify events and examine trends, we can track ice floes, route ships, monitor crops for growers, map wetlands for ecologists, detect pollution for environmental scientists, spot illegal deforestation for governments and keep an eye on military mobilization.
