ICEYE X are proof-of-concept prototypes for a planned constellation of SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) equipped microsatellites, designed by the Finnish 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 third prototype, ICEYE X3, will be using a bus built by York Space Systems to carry the ICEYE built SAR system. It will be launched on an Electron KS rocket in 2019.
