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 global revisit rates of on average 3 hours. Each satellite unit continues to introduce individual improvements on the system.

Constellation - Satellites
Several New Satellites Each Year

ICEYE continues to grow its SAR satellite constellation each year. Following ICEYE-X1 and ICEYE-X2, the company’s first SAR satellite missions, ICEYE has contracted launches for 5 new satellites for 2019 alone. The pace at which new satellites are launched is built around the market needs both in data and information services.

Constellation - Change Detection
Orbit Optimized for Change Detection

The initial ICEYE SAR satellite constellation for 2019 is planned to be in orbit in 3 different inclinations, with 2 satellites in each inclination. 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.

Constellation - Operational Needs
SAR Data that Suits Your Operational Need

X-band radar imaging is available at 1x1 meter resolutions as Spotlight, at 1.5x1.5 and 3x3 meter resolutions as Stripmap, and at 20x20 meter resolution as ScanSAR. Products include SLC, GRD, and map-projected files, delivered via SFTP or API direct to operational systems.
