Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) announced today that, in 2018, it will be carrying three satellites that will make up Canada’s RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM) into orbit aboard its Falcon 9 rocket.

The launch reservation contract was awarded by  MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (MDA Robotics) to support Canada’s largest space program to date in Canada. The satellite mission, which will be built on previous missions RADARSAT-1 and RADARSAT-2, will “support Canada’s need for maritime surveillance, disaster management and ecosystem monitoring”.
