ICEYE

ICEYE X1 [ICEYE]

ICEYE is a planned constellation of SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) equipped nanosatellites, designed by the Finish ICEYE startup company.

ICEYE is designed to provide near-real-time SAR imagery. Iceye is working to launch and operate a constellation of micro satellites that carry its own compact and efficient SAR sensor technology. The Iceye imaging radar instrument can image through clouds, obscuring weather and darkness.

The satellites are to be based on the S-Class bus provided by York Space Systems. Ten of these buses are under contract for ICEYE.

Its first prototype satellite, ICEYE X1, is scheduled to launch in the second half of 2017 as a secondary payload on a PSLV-XL. A second prototype, ICEYE X2, is also ready to fly on another launch vehicle. In 2016, ICEYE entered a partnership with Vector Space Systems to launch 21 satellite on Vector-RE1 rockets from Kodiak Island. Launch vehicles from other partners will also be used.
