SAPPHIRE is Canada's first operational military satellite, and its optical telescope will track other satellites orbiting Earth at higher altitudes, including objects in geosynchronous orbit. The 326-pound (148-kg) spacecraft was built by Surrey Satellite Technologies Ltd. under the authority of MDA Corp., Sapphire's prime contractor. The Canadian Department of National Defence plans to share Sapphire's tracking data with the U.S. Air Force, which monitors all objects in orbit.
