Observing Systems Capability Analysis and Review Tool
Satellite Programme: ICEYE
Constellation of satellites (18 at regime) for SAR imagery, proof-of-concept for a future operational constellation of microsatellites.
Commercial programme implemented by ICEYE Ltd, Espoo, Finland.
The platforms are actively stabilised over 3 axes.
The design life time is 5 years for individual satellites, undetermined for the full constellation.
The replacement policy is based on launching satellites taking advantage of launch opportunities.
The orbit is sunsynchronous in most case, with heights ranging from 500 to 600 km, and ECT conditioned by the launch opportunity.
