UP42 Expands SAR Satellite Portfolio with Addition of ICEYE Data

By Eric Van Rees - 11th October 2022 - 05:32

UP42 has significantly expanded its portfolio of satellite synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data with the addition of products from ICEYE, a provider of persistent monitoring with radar satellite imaging.

ICEYE is capable of providing persistent near-real time monitoring for any location on Earth multiple times a day or night, and in any weather conditions.

Effective today, UP42 customers can start ordering new acquisitions through the tasking platform as well as ordering from the extensive ICEYE archive data.

“The addition of ICEYE SAR data gives UP42 customers the unique ability to monitor assets and areas of interest around the clock regardless of sunlight or weather,” said UP42 CEO Sean Wiid. “By combining ICEYE capabilities with other data on our platform, our users can reliably detect and objectively monitor changing situations that require data-driven responses.”

Based in Finland, ICEYE owns and operates the world’s largest constellation of SAR satellites. SAR differs from optical imaging in that radar is an active sensing technology capable of capturing image data under any lighting conditions, including total darkness. Additionally, SAR data can be collected through clouds, fog, smoke, and haze. These capabilities make SAR a truly 24/7 global monitoring technology.
