12 September 2019
ICEYE, the leader in small synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) satellite technology, today announced its two SAR satellites launched in July 2019 have finalized their initial commissioning, and are available for customer data orders.
The company now provides standardized commercial imaging access to three of its SAR satellite units, in addition to serving a number of customers with custom data products and solutions. ICEYE is set to launch two more SAR satellite units by the end of 2019 to further increase the commercial availability and coverage of the globe with the company's constellation.
"The ICEYE SAR satellite constellation is soon becoming the largest of its kind in the world," said Rafal Modrzewski, CEO and Co-founder of ICEYE. "In addition to serving customers with an increasing amount of capacity and access, we continue to develop and deploy new capabilities for our current SAR satellites already in orbit."
