The World's First Small SAR satellite constellation.
Individual ICEYE SAR satellites form a constellation that enables unmatched imaging revisit rates on a global scale. ICEYE’s SAR satellite constellation provides different angle imaging multiple times a day for specified area of interest. ICEYE SAR constellation is constantly growing and will provide previously unavailable imaging capabilities and access, allowing quick tactical acquisitions as well as very frequent global revisit rates. Each satellite unit continues to introduce individual improvements on the system.
ICEYE continues to grow its SAR satellite constellation each year. Currently, the company successfully delivers data to customers worldwide from its commercial constellation of satellites. ICEYE has contracted launches for several new units over the next years. The pace at which new satellites are launched is built around the market needs both in data and information services.
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.
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.
