WHAT DATA CAN I GET FROM ICEYE?

Researchers gain access to ICEYE's full archive and can order new data acquisitions. ICEYE data is available in Single Look Complex (SLC) and Ground Range Detected (GRD) processing levels in the following imaging modes:

Spot imaging mode - default
SPOT IMAGING MODE

Spot offers the finest resolution available.

  • Slant resolution: 0.5 x 0.25 m
  • Ground resolution: 1.0 x 1.0 m
  • Scene size: 5 x 5 km
  • Incidence angles: 20-35°
Spot Extended area (SLEA) imaging mode
SPOT EXTENDED AREA (SLEA) IMAGING MODE

Spot Extended Area provides largest very-high resolution SAR imagery.

  • Slant resolution: 0.5 m x 1.0 m
  • Ground resolution: 1.0 m x 1.0 m
  • Scene size: 15 x 15 km
  • Incidence angles: 20-35°
Stripe imaging mode - default
STRIP IMAGING MODE

Strip mode enables imaging any area on Earth, at any time with spatial resolutions of 3 meters and scene size of 30 x 50 kilometers.

  • Slant resolution: 0.5–2.5 x 3.0 m
  • Ground resolution: 3.0 x 3.0 m
  • Scene size: 30 x 50 km
  • Incidence angles: 15-30°

Scan imaging mode - default
SCAN IMAGING MODE

Scan is a wide-area imaging mode enabling acquiring 10,000 km2 in a single SAR image.

  • Ground resolution: 15 x 1.5 m
  • Scene size: 100 x 100 km
  • Incidence angles: 21-29°

DATA USE CASES

The technical characteristics and global coverage of the ICEYE products provide extremely valuable inputs for a variety of studies and application developments. The data can be used to develop new services and products for sectors such as mining, maritime, agriculture, and forestry. It is also well-suited for change detection on ground, assessment of damages caused by natural catastrophes, and monitoring of infrastructure integrity.
