GHGSat announced this week during the "Space in Canada" panel at the 33rd Space Symposium that it has performed its 1000th measurement with its demonstration satellite, "Claire". This particular measurement is of a landfill in Japan.

This milestone was reached more than two months ahead of schedule, and validates an important element of GHGSat's business case. GHGSat announced earlier this year that it has ordered two more satellites, based in part on successful performance demonstrations like this one.
