Don Osborne, MDA s group vice president of Information Systems said, MDA has played a leadership role in advancing space technology since the Company s inception, and have many notable achievements, including the processing of the Seasat
As an example, image data for the SEASAT
satellite has been used to establish the framework for SOC, and the coordinates in the SOC have been calculated.
Maersk Supply Service vessels will advantage from Eutelsat s maritime connectivity services using SAILOR 900B VSAT antennas formed by Cobham that will be deployed and maintained by SEASAT.
This additional multiyear contract with SEASAT will address our growing needs for reliable and cost effective communications services onboard our vessels.
We are proud that Maersk Supply Service and SEASAT continue to place their trust in us and that our Ku-band-based solutions are increasingly proving their value for crew welfare and ship to shore connectivity.
Pierre-Jean Beylier, CEO of SpeedCast, added, SpeedCast is pleased to support our long-term partner SEASAT for this opportunity with Maersk Supply Service.
Maersk Supply Service vessels will benefit from Eutelsat s maritime connectivity services using SAILOR 900B VSAT antennas produced by Cobham that will be deployed and maintained by SEASAT
will be responsible to install and commission the equipment and also provide service and support to the vessels.
The discovery of these lines, which in the east central Pacific span an area the size of the continental United States, could not have been made without the large-scale view available for the first time from Seasat
, says Haxby.
Marsh's group worked with data collected during the flights of GEOS-3 (Geodetic Earth Observing Satellite) launched in 1975 and the SEASAT satellite launched in 1978.
Unlike SEASAT and GEOS-3, which provided an averaged "snapshot' of the sea surface, TOPEX is designed to map the ocean shape as a function of time.
