ICEYE signs deal with CDC to explore flood impacts

May 2024 | No Comment

ICEYE, a global leader in satellite-powered disaster management solutions, has announced a new contract with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which provides the federal agency with access to ICEYE Flood Insights for events across the United States and its territories.

As part of the agreement, ICEYE will deliver flood impact data and analysis to teams at CDC’s Geospatial Research, Analysis, and Services Program (GRASP). GRASP is CDC’s leading geospatial unit, partnering with groups across the agency to analyze, visualize, and map complex data sets — leveraging GIS expertise to explore the link between location and public health.

ICEYE will provide GRASP researchers with near real-time geospatial data for all significant U.S. flood events. These insights will enhance CDC’s disaster response capabilities as well as support the agency’s core public health research and initiatives. As floods become more frequent, costly, and severe, citizens nationwide are increasingly vulnerable to impacts from these events.
