ICEYE Wildfire Insights
Leverage the world's largest constellation of smoke-penetrating SAR satellites to support rapid wildfire response, recovery, and mitigation at the community level.
ICEYE satellites use novel synthetic aperture radar (SAR) technology to help government agencies around the world improve wildfire resilience. Unlike traditional optical satellites, our patented microsatellites use space-based radar to capture Earth, providing uninterrupted visibility through smoke, clouds, and darkness that was never possible before.
With an unimpeded view of Earth in any conditions, SAR satellites are exceptionally well-suited for monitoring wildfire events. ICEYE's world-leading SAR constellation transforms wildfire response by delivering GIS-ready insights before the smoke has cleared. This allows government agencies to not only monitor active wildfires, but also track perimeters and assess damage in near real-time.
Quickly assess wildfire impacts on individual buildings from inside your GIS platform.
Monitor active wildfires and their impacts in near real time to confidently deploy resources on the ground. ICEYE synthesizes data from satellites, ground-truth observations, and third-party sources to deliver actionable insights within hours.
Equip various agencies with a single source of truth using ICEYE's wildfire intelligence. Rather than wait days or more for smoke-free aerial images, ICEYE enables emergency managers to take immediate action with GIS-ready impact data.
Modernize your disaster response and mitigation with always-on satellite monitoring from ICEYE. With access to geospatial wildfire intelligence, your leaders can better protect their most vulnerable communities and infrastructure.

Governments have traditionally relied on ad hoc aerial flyovers to assess wildfire damage on the ground. But these overhead photos are not only obscured by smoke and darkness, they also require manual annotation to identify and assess critical infrastructure. ICEYE changes that.
The Wildfire Insights solution delivers unprecedented situational awareness during wildfires by using space-based radar to avoid the inherent limitations of optical imagery. This GIS-enabled solution combines satellite remote sensing, observational ground truth, and third-party data to provide rapid and reliable wildfire intelligence before the smoke has cleared.
ICEYE leverages sophisticated remote sensing to automate the damage assessment process. Visualize your exposures with GIS-ready vector layers (building footprints or lat/long points). Damage insights are updated daily and use a binary (destroyed/undamaged) classification for each structure.
ICEYE also offers a web-based wildfire monitoring application hosted natively in Esri's ArcGIS Experience Builder. The web app visualizes wildfires with a variety of interactive features, including active wildfire perimeters, hotspots, building footprints, populated urban centers, and more.

While satellites were previously reserved for national governments, the blossoming "New Space" industry has democratized access to Earth observation. Today, using the "satellite-as-a-service" model, even state and county governments can leverage remote sensing satellites for disaster intelligence at the local level. Discover how your communities can improve wildfire resilience by tapping into ICEYE's world-leading constellation of SAR microsatellites.
ICEYE delivers unparalleled situational awareness by operating the world's largest constellation of SAR satellites. With unimpeded remote sensing and multiple daily revisits, you'll have rapid and reliable insights during active events.
Because SAR satellites observe Earth with radar waves instead of optical sensors, they ensure reliable captures in any conditions. This visibility through smoke, clouds, and darkness means your teams can respond faster on the ground.
The Wildfire Insights solution delivers GIS-ready intel to support rapid emergency response. Leverage your existing GIS software to provide a single source of truth (and seamless updates) to multiple agencies and departments.
ICEYE collects and synthesizes new data throughout the day to produce a single, actionable update every 24 hours. We analyze data from satellites, observations, and other sources for a holistic view of local impacts.
Immediately understand the impact of floods and base your decisions on reliable, near real-time flood extent and depth data.
