CANADA NEARS START OF RADARSAT MISSION
A Canadian consortium stands ready to begin providing global radar data to commercial customers in 25 nations early next year if the delayed launch of Radarsat 1 occurs next month as is now expected.
Radarsat marks Canada's first foray into the field of Earth observation, and the C$620-million effort has been 15 years in the making. The Canadian Space Agency, backed by public and private financing, is managing the program. NASA is providing the launch in exchange for access to data.
