Finland-based ICEYE, a small synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) satellite technology company, has announced its two SAR satellites, which launched in July 2019, have finalized their initial commissioning, the company said.

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.

ICEYE is building and operating its own commercial constellation of SAR satellites, with SAR data already available to customers. ICEYE empowers others to make better decisions in governmental and commercial industries by providing access to timely and reliable radar satellite imagery.
