Iceye's first SAR microsatellite Image covered on BBC 5th February 2018 ICEYE's 'suitcase space radar' returns first image Jonathan Amos- BBC Science Correspondent - 18th January Iceye's 1st Image profiled by Jonathan Amos - BBC Science Correspondent The Image shows a segment of Noatak National Preserve in Alaska. The full picture transmitted to the ground was over 1.2GB in size and encompasses an area of roughly 80km x 40km. ICEYE-X1 obtained the image in the span of 10 seconds as it travelled at a speed of more than 7.5km/s and at an altitude exceeding 500km. The picture renders objects as small as 10m across. ICEYE wants eventually to get this resolution down to 3m.
