DigitalGlobe Includes Radarsat-2 Satellite Data in Cloud-Based GEOINT Platform

Maxar Technologies“˜ DigitalGlobe business has added imagery from an MDA-built Earth observation satellite to a cloud-based technology platform built to help government analysts obtain geospatial intelligence data.

SecureWatch users can start to access Radarsat-2 synthetic aperture radar data beginning on Oct. 1 via a subscription service, Maxar said Monday.

The GEOINT platform will also feature both SAR and optical imagery, the company added.

DigitalGlobe President Dan Jablonsky said the integration of SAR data to optical imagery into a single platform can help analysts gain access to new information and make decisions.

MDA, also a Maxar business, intends to use the wide ultra-fine format of Radarsat-2 in order to update multiple global sites weekly.

The satellite is designed to collect imagery for users to detect changes that are not easily detected through other imaging methods.
