[SatNews] Entire Canadian oil field coverages are now on this Company's agenda...

MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (TSX: MDA) has signed multi-year contracts totalling more than $1 million (CAD) to supply oil field monitoring products to a leading integrated oil company. MDA will apply advanced RADARSAT-2 high-resolution surveillance capabilities that include a large collection capacity and high accuracy to detect subtle surface changes, independent of weather, and over the entire oil fields. Early detection of surface movement allows the company to enhance production and mitigate environmental risks in their oil fields. MDA will also provide analytical reports that compare historical movement to the current situation.
