Canada’s trio of next-generation of Earth observation satellites known as the RADARSAT Constellation Mission is scheduled to launch in mid-June. What will the launch look like? How will the satellites be deployed?

To answer those questions the Canadian Space Agency and the satellite prime contractor, MDA, have released the following animation.

The video includes this description: Animation of the launch and deployment of the three satellites of the RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM). The RCM will take daily scans of our country and its waters collecting invaluable information. This important data helps captains safely navigate through Arctic waters, farmers maximize their crop yields and first responders save lives, among other solutions.
