Macdonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. Signs Six Year Contract with a Ceiling of CAD 29 Million with the European Space Agency

MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. announced that it has signed a six year contract with a ceiling of CAD 29 million with the European Space Agency. MDA will provide RADARSAT-2 satellite information to Copernicus, a program funded by the European Union. This contract is inclusive of an initial firm order of CAD 14.6 million. MDA has been providing RADARSAT-2 information to Europe's Copernicus program (previously known as Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) since July 2009. The RADARSAT-2 information will be used to provide mission critical information on sea ice in the Baltic Sea and Antarctic Ocean throughout the ice seasons, support disaster relief, improve the safety of maritime navigation, monitor assets, and support various mapping applications. The Copernicus program was established to provide users in Europe with access to accurate and timely information to better manage the environment, understand and mitigate the effects of climate change, and ensure civil security.

MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. Signs Two Contract Amendments, with Combined Total of CAD 7 Million

MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. has signed two contract amendments, with a combined total of CAD 7 million, with Canada's Department of National Defence to provide software upgrades to the radar surveillance systems for Canada's fleet of CP-140 Aurora aircraft. The CP-140 Aurora fleet is Canada's Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance aircraft. The fleet is used by the Royal Canadian Air Force in activities such as domestic surveillance of Canada's maritime approaches, search and rescue missions, and maritime and overland operations. MDA's radar surveillance system provides users with a high resolution imaging capability that can detect, locate, and classify land and marine-based objects, such as vehicles and ships.

Macdonald Dettwiler & Associates to Continue Providing Operational Support to Canada's Broad Area Maritime Surveillance System

MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. announced that the Government of Canada's Department of National Defence (DND) has exercised its third renewal option for a contract originally announced in April 2013. MDA will continue to provide operational support for the east and west coast RADARSAT-2 ground systems that support the Polar Epsilon Near-Real Time Ship Detection (NRTSD) system. The option is valued at approximately CAD 2.4 million and extends support until March 2016. The NRTSD system is a broad-area surveillance system that was delivered by MDA to DND in 2012. The system delivers space-based, day and night, all-weather maritime surveillance information of Canada's Arctic, Atlantic and Pacific oceans and includes global high-resolution surveillance capabilities to support deployed Canadian Forces.
