ICEYE, the leader in synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) technology for microsatellites, has announced an agreement with Kongsberg Satellite Services (KSAT) to purchase SAR satellite tasking and data from ICEYE. The maritime and ice monitoring data will be collected with ICEYE-X1, ICEYE’s first satellite in orbit, which was successfully launched in January.

“ICEYE was initially started with a focus on actively monitoring changes in sea ice and maritime environments as a whole,” said Rafal Modrzewski, CEO and co-founder of ICEYE. “We’ve evolved to support many different industries with our earth observation data services. Working alongside KSAT, another fellow Nordic company, we are excited to provide the company with greater visibility into their areas of interest and together push the envelope forward for ice and maritime monitoring.”

Norway-based KSAT is a provider of global ground station and Earth observation services. With interconnected and unique polar ground stations in the Arctic and in Antarctica, a growing mid-latitude network, the company operates more than 130 antennas in an interconnected network for access to polar orbits. KSAT currently supports more than 100 satellite missions, including ICEYE-X1, with ground station services.

ICEYE is planning to launch at least two additional missions throughout the remainder of 2018. The missions, ICEYE-X2 and ICEYE-X3, will help to further develop and demonstrate the company’s SAR sensor and data acquisition capabilities for select customers.
