The Canadian Air Force will create maps of Afghanistan using two CP-140 Auroras deployed over the region to promote interoperability and operational success.

The maps will help with Operation Athena, the Canadian contingent in the Nato-led mission in Afghanistan.

High-resolution, colour and stereo imagery will be used by the Auroras to create the maps which will include new areas not covered by existing references.

Image data will cover priority areas identified by the Canadian Forces and allies in conjunction with joint task force – Afghanistan.

The data will also be shared across the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), including the Afghan National Army (ANA) and Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF).
