Irvine-based satellite company ICEYE US said it has received a contract from the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) to participate in an evaluation program with the U.S. intelligence agency.
The contract enables ICEYE US to take part in the NRO’s evaluation of commercial remote sensing companies operating synthetic aperture radar satellites, according to a statement today.
ICEYE US will support NRO’s detailed assessment of imaging modes, image quality, geolocation accuracy and coverage among other important technical parameters.
“We are committed to advancing state-of-the-art commercial remote sensing capabilities for the U.S. government and dramatically improving NRO’s access to flight-proven satellites that collect high resolution radar imagery anywhere on Earth,” Jerry Welsh, CEO of ICEYE US, said in the statement.
