MDA Tracks Oil Spill

By on 13 May, 2010

Canadian geospatial services provider MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd is providing a multi-source surveillance service to help track the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.


The information will help support the operations that are currently underway to monitor the spill and minimise its environmental impact, and to optimise the clean up process.


MDA is providing data from its satellites and specialised analysts to assist in the maritime operations. It will also provide crucial information on the oil spill’s progress, including its size, direction and possible areas of impact.
