Canada's RADARSAT program has a long history, going back to experimenting with radar sensors onboard the Convair 580 aircraft, which is now in the collection of the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. The program’s 24-year legacy also includes the launches of RADARSAT-1 in 1995 and RADARSAT-2 in 2007. The new RADARSAT Constellation Mission represents the next generation of satellites that will continue to expand Canada's ability to monitor our country and its coastal areas.
