ICEYE SAR data is collected regardless of weather conditions, through cloud cover, and during the night. This enables regular monitoring of sea and land areas and frequent imaging of hard-to-reach regions
Operational use of radar satellite imaging requires timely response and delivery of SAR data. Standard ICEYE service timeline from image acquisition to data delivery to a customer takes to 12 hours from image downlink to delivery, with a capability to deliver imagery in few hours for urgent requests.
X-band radar imaging is available at 0.25x0.5 meter resolution as Spotlight High, 1x1 meter resolution as Spotlight, 3x3 meter resolution as Stripmap, and Stripmap High providing finer slant range resolution maintaining all the features of the standard ICEYE Stripmap mode. The 15x15 meter resolution ScanSAR imaging mode is currently under development.
ICEYE constellation aims to support daily ground track repeat globally, enabling fast build-up of image stack for advanced InSAR analysis. ICEYE radar imagery is exceptionally suitable for marine applications, large areas monitoring, and frequent change detection.
The initial ICEYE SAR satellite constellation for 2020 is planned to be in orbit in several different inclinations. ICEYE continues to grow its current SAR satellite constellation capacity with the objective to provide daily interferometry and coherent change detection anywhere on Earth with a 24h ground track repeat.
