NASA to acquire Synthetic Aperture Radar Data from ICEYE
ICEYE US, a company in persistent monitoring of Earth with radar imaging satellites, has won a contract under a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) with NASA announced earlier this year. The contract enables NASA to acquire ICEYE’s synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) data for evaluation by scientific and academic communities to determine suitability for advancing NASA’s Earth Science research objectives. The BPA is funded by the Earth Science Division of the Science Mission Directorate.
Since 2020, NASA’s Commercial Smallsat Data Acquisition (CSDA) Program has been identifying, evaluating, and acquiring data from commercial sources aligned with NASA’s Earth Science Division objectives.
