Avascent awarded EOSC Initiative Contract by Canadian Space Agency
OTTAWA – Avascent is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the Contract “Earth Observation Services Continuity (EOSC) Initiative – Business Case Support” by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA). The work under this contract will support the CSA and many other Government Departments, addressing critical issues and challenges for Canada’s future scientific space missions.
As part of its planning for possible future activities and collaboration with different stakeholders, this contract will support the development of business cases, business analysis and decision briefs aimed at informing on alternatives for the continuity of space-based earth observation services for the Government of Canada after the sunset of the Radarsat Constellation Mission (RCM).
“Our team is excited to serve the CSA and the Government of Canada on such a critical file at such an important juncture. Avascent’s specialized knowledge and expertise in the global space market will help Canada identify and implement a successor solution to Canada’s legacy C-band synthetic aperture radar-based capabilities,” said Michael Petric, Director, and head of Avascent’s Ottawa office.
“Our project team’s expertise will help support the CSA and the Government of Canada in determining project requirements, analyzing trade-offs, and refining potential investment scenarios,” said Kyle Van Hooren, Senior Manager and lead of Avascent Canada’s Space Practice.
