Replace Existing Systems

Objective

Polar Epsilon 2 (PE2) will enhance exisiting Polar Epsilon (PE) capabilities by significantly increasing the Government of Canada's near-real time situational awareness of activities in Canada’s three ocean approaches and through increased surveillance persistence of Canada’s Arctic and global areas of interest.

Requirements

PE2 is a key enabler in a whole of government approach that builds upon Canada’s heritage in space radar to meet Canada’s strategic information requirements (defence, security, environment, natural resources, disaster management, etc). Specifically, PE2 will significantly increase the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) near-real time situational awareness of activities in Canada’s three ocean approaches and through increased surveillance persistence of Canada’s Arctic and global areas of interest. By exploiting the RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM) satellites, PE2 will be a key enabler in the CAF’s daily surveillance and reconnaissance operations, delivering significantly improved capabilities from 2018 onwards. The Government of Canada RCM is currently being designed to replace RADARSAT 2 as it reaches its minimum seven year design life in 2015.
