Canada Urged to Adopt Private Sector Solutions for Faster Arctic Satellite Surveillance

  • Canada's military-satellite coverage in the Arctic could be expedited by a decade if the government partners with the private sector, as suggested in a recent House of Commons committee meeting.

  • MDA CEO Mike Greenley advocated leveraging commercial space solutions to avoid these delays.
