In this episode, we speak with Eric Laliberté, Director General Space Utilization at the Canadian Space Agency (CSA). Given that Eric and the host are both francophone, a short portion of the interview was held in French followed by a brief translation. Eric’s passion for the aerospace industry comes through in this conversation, where we discuss the latest Canadian Earth Observation Mission (RADARSAT Constellation Mission) and the important role the CSA plays in moving Canada’s space industry forward. We also talk about Eric’s role with the international organizations including the Group on Earth Observation (GEO) as well as the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS).
