Detection & Monitoring of Illegal Landing Strips Around the World With ICEYE SAR Data

Detect unsanctioned landing strips within your country early enough with ICEYE SAR data to take necessary measures and prevent further illegal activities, such as drug trafficking, associated with the airstrips. 

Illegally-built  airstrips are usually hidden and located in remote areas. This makes it difficult, costly and time-consuming for authorities to find them, and hence, prevent usage of these runways.  Timely airstrip detection is crucial for taking quick and effective actions to prevent further illegal importations through using these unsanctioned landing strips. 


Timely Detection of Illegal Airstrips with SAR Satellite DATA

Enable active imaging of the Earth surface with the ICEYE Constellation of SAR satellites. The benefit of employing SAR satellites is in the technology's ability to acquire images of large areas independently of sunlight and cloud cover, making the search process faster and more reliable. With persistent stream of SAR data, hidden landing strips in the area of interest can be detected and monitored on a regular basis. 





  • Detecting hidden and unsanctioned airstrips using ICEYE SAR satellite imagery, acquired through clouds and in darkness. 
  • Regular monitoring of illegal airstrips to detect unsanctioned activities.
  • Obtaining additional information, such as landing strips length.
