BridgeSat's Laser Satellite Terminals and Ground Services Connect ICEYE's Next-Gen Microsatellite Constellation

Share:

BridgeSat announced today a set of agreements to provide space laser
terminals and data services to ICEYE,
the world's first commercial microsatellite synthetic-aperture radar
(SAR) constellation. BridgeSat's innovative, low-cost terminals and
associated ground services give businesses and government agencies a
faster, less expensive alternative to traditional radio frequency (RF)
solutions for low earth orbit (LEO) and geostationary earth orbit (GEO)
applications.

ICEYE provides turnkey data delivery and analytics services for
commercial and government applications worldwide, including global
disaster response, agricultural management, city planning, maritime port
traffic management and forest management. It's the first organization in
the world to successfully deploy SAR satellites with a launch mass under
100 kg.

BridgeSat will provide ICEYE its Compact Laser Comms Terminals (CLCT),
which provide up to 10 Gbps LEO downlinks in a compact form factor that
weighs less than 2 kg. BridgeSat will also provide ground services
through BridgeSat's free-space optical network.

"Pioneers seek out other pioneers to change the world," said Barry
Matsumori, BridgeSat CEO
. "We're the first to commercialize
laser-based free space optical communication and associated ground
services, which are an ideal match for ICEYE, the world's first
commercial microsatellite synthetic aperture radar constellation."

"By leveraging next-gen satellite technology, ICEYE is giving commercial
and government users affordable new options for making informed
decisions," said Rafal Modrzewski, ICEYE CEO. "BridgeSat's compact,
low-cost, high-speed space laser communications terminals and ground
services are key for achieving our goal of democratizing access to earth
observation data."
