Iceye is publicly releasing its first synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite imagery with a resolution of less than one metre.

"Under one-meter resolution imaging from SAR satellites under 100 kilograms is a remarkable technological achievement," Iceye CEO Rafal Modrzewski told SpaceNews by email. "It helps in solving a different set of Earth observation challenges than lower resolution imaging."
