Very High Resolution Spotlight Imagery on-Demand

ICEYE Spotlight 25 cm SAR imagery enables users to gain extensive insights from high resolution satellite imagery - delivered up to multiple times per day.

 Following standard industry definitions, the native slant plane resolution is 25 cm in azimuth direction, and 50 cm in range direction, before ground-plane adjustments are applied.
 
ICEYE Spotlight imagery is operationally available for acquisition worldwide.

Learn More About ICEYE Imaging Modes

Spotlight Imaging Mode

In Spotlight mode, mechanical antenna steering in the azimuth direction is used to increase the illumination time, resulting in an increased synthetic aperture and, therefore, better azimuth resolution compared to a continuous stripmap mode.
