Canada's Sci-Sat marks 5 years

Longueuil, August 12, 2008 — Operating well beyond its planned lifetime of two years, Canada’s SCISAT

celebrates its fifth birthday today in service to science and Canada. Since its launch in 2003, SCISAT has provided high-precision information on the condition of the ozone layer and atmospheric changes.

It is the only satellite capable of 3D surveillance of the gases regulated by the Montreal Protocol, which is of great importance to decision-makers.
