Abstract:
RSI's broad range of products are derived from the majority of commercially available Earth-observation satellites: RADARSAT-1, LANDSAT 4/5, LANDSAT 7, IKONOS, IRS, ERS, QuickBird, and ENVISAT. RSI augments its product offerings with services including processing, GIS, consulting, training, and near-real time production and delivery. By combining satellite data-derived information with other data sources such as climate/filed data, baseline geographic information, and Internet-based information, RSI is successfully responding to today's changing operational business needs. RSI's core business is the worldwide distribution, processing, and delivery of RADARSAT data products. The RADARSAT-1 satellite was successfully launched November 4, 1995, and is owned and operated by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA). RADARSAT-1 imagery products offer high-quality, timely, and cost-effective solutions to natural resource management and environmental operations. Equipped with a unique and powerful synthetic aperture radar (SAR), RADARSAT-1 is able to dependably acquire scenes of virtually any location on the Earth regardless of weather or light conditions, and products can be reliably delivered to anywhere in the world. RSI offers near-real time delivery of data (within 3 hours of downlink to certain RADARSAT-1 Network Stations) to clients with time-critical operations such as disaster management and ship navigation. Continuity of the program is assured with follow-on satellites: RADARSAT-2 is scheduled for launch in late 2004 and will be distributed worldwide (outside of the US) by RSI. To ensure prompt product delivery and consistently high-quality client service, RSI has established an international network of over 80 distributors, and 14 international ground receiving stations. RSI's in-house data processing expertise offers clients fast delivery and the opportunity to customize products to suit specific operational requirements. Data is available on a variety of media such as CD-ROM and 8-mm data cartridge, and is deliverable either by courier or electronically. In choosing the appropriate satellite data source and product you will need to consider the following: * Location: geographic area and type of terrain * Scale: level of detail required * Application: type of information extracted from data * Quality: reliability of the data sources * Timing: how quickly the data is required * Format: appropriate data format Prices: Each satellite offers important features and benefits to clients, such as a selection of viewing angles, coverage area, and resolution. These technical specifications vary considerably and must be taken into account when evaluating prices and the specific requirements of the client's project/operation. The approximate price for a full scene, Path Image product, on CD-ROM, is: RADARSAT Standard: USD 2,750 / CAD 3,725 ERS: USD 1,100 / CAD 1,600 LANDSAT 7 ETM+: USD 600 / CAD 900 Data is also available from IKONOS, earlier LANDSAT missions, and QuickBird. Prices exclude premiums for programming, processing, and delivery. RSI can provide you with a customized solution to your unique information requirements.
