UrtheCast Corp has been selected to receive $2–million from the Canadian Space Agency’s (CSA) Space Technology Development Program (STDP), in two separate agreements of $1–million each, for the development of new satellite technologies. The work is expected to start immediately and will be carried out over the next three years. The first CSA STDP contribution agreement, Automated Calibration and Validation of Optical Satellite Constellations, will aid UrtheCast in the development of new technologies for its planned UrtheDaily Constellation, currently slated for deployment in 2021. The second CSA STDP contribution agreement, “A Novel Self-Cueing TCPED Cycle for High Resolution Wide Swath SAR Imaging,” will support continued development of the next generation UrtheCast SAR-XL synthetic aperture radar. UrtheCast Corp is a Vancouver-based company that serves the rapidly growing and evolving geospatial and geo-analytics markets with a wide range of information-rich products and services.
