    Operational Space-Based AIS Data
    The Canadian Space Agency has a requirement to procure
    operational space-based AIS data sets via a constant data feed
    for real time monitoring of maritime traffic in both the
    Canadian Domestic Maritime and Global Areas of Interest (AOIs). 
    While the principal requirement is for operational space-based
    AIS data sets (i.e., processed AIS data sets), the Government of
    Canada may require, from time to time, additional data as
    described below.  Any additional data will only be provided for
    a specified time period and only if requested by the Technical
    Authority identified in the contract.  Under no circumstances
    will additional data be accepted unless requested in writting by
    the Technical Authority beforehand: 
    a.	Additional data refresh:  The Government of Canada may
    require additional data refresh per day, if available by the
    supplier, for either the Canadian Maritime AOI or the Global
    Maritime AOI;
    b.	Raw space-based AIS data: The Government of Canada may
    require as well all (other) forms of the data acquired to serve
    operational objectives / needs, specifically for the purpose of
    carrying out R&D activities. Therefore, the Government of Canada
    could require data representing the output of the receiver
    (i.e., the spectrum signal and I/Q samples of the signal) to be
    delivered as raw AIS data.  This data set shall consist of
    unprocessed space-based AIS data.
    Space-based AIS data sets shall be provided from AIS messages
    transmitted by ships on waters within the following operational
    areas of interest (AOIs):

    east or west from the Atlantic and/or Pacific Oceans from the
    Canadian land mass, as well as Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic
    approaches to Canadian waters;
    -	Global Maritime AOI:  Any area on the Earth and must include
    the Canadian Domestic Maritime AOI.
    Period of the contract: Contract award date - March 31st 2013
    with two (2) options to extend for periods of one (1) year each.
    The requirement is subject to a preference for Canadian goods
    and/or services.

    of the Request for Proposal (RFP).
