Persistent Monitoring of Surface Water Extent in Remote Areas With SAR Data

Obtain frequently acquired SAR satellite data from ICEYE and get to know the accurate surface water extent within your mining site as well as water gains and losses in a tailing dam, surface run-off, or any other water body within area of your interest. 

Having the most recent information on the surface water extent is crucial for mining activities, operational and environmental safety, and efficient resource management. SAR satellite data, taken independently of clouds and daylight, is a key to getting accurate and reliable information on surface water extent regularly.



  • Detection of changes of the surface water within a mining area (e.g. tailing dams, surface run-off, and other water bodies).
  • Frequent monitoring of land subsidence. 


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. This breaks existing barriers in collecting SAR imagery stacks for InSAR analysis, bringing the collection time down with every new satellite in the ICEYE constellation. Since 2018, ICEYE has launched commercially available SAR satellites, and the company will continue to increase the size of the commercial constellation every year.
