exactEarth awarded MDA Contract
MDA awarded exactEarth a four-year, $2.7 million contract to provide AIS data processing services for the Canadian Department of National Defence’s Polar Epsilon 2 (PE2) project. The PE2 project is a national initiative combining radar and automatic identification system (AIS) data from the RADARSAT Constellation Mission to provide enhanced maritime domain awareness that will identify, detect, and track vessels. exactEarth will provide services to establish, test, and validate the AIS processing service, which will then be followed by two years of service operations.
