ICEYE’s 3 Newest Satellites From Late January Launch Return First Radar Images

ICEYE is currently delivering SAR Data Services from the World’s most advanced radar imaging satellite constellation designed for Persistent Monitoring. Data from these new spacecraft will be available to customer orders after further calibration.

Helsinki, FINLAND – February 25, 2021 – ICEYE, the global leader in persistent monitoring with radar satellite imaging, published today its first set of images from the three ICEYE SAR satellites launched at the end of January by the SpaceX Transporter-1 mission. All three spacecraft have successfully completed initial operations and are now progressing through the calibration process. Once the calibration stage and final preparations are completed, the spacecraft will become commercially available for customers to order images. Radar satellite imaging is used to monitor locations of interest both day and night, and even through cloud cover.

“With the largest fleet of SAR satellites in the world, optimized for mission specific performance, ICEYE is uniquely positioned to deliver best-in- class persistent monitoring performance,” said Rafal Modrzewski, CEO and Co-founder of ICEYE. “Seeing the first images from new spacecraft is always an exciting time. Each of the frames represent a massive amount of effort from our team.”

Below, a selected gallery of radar satellite images from the three newest SAR satellites from ICEYE. Some of these images were taken as early as February 15, less than a month after launch.

Thanks to our optimized design, we are able to capture even the most target congested areas and provide unmatched persistent monitoring capabilities.”
