Audacy signs MOU with ICEYE

Audacy, a space communications service provider delivering real-time spacecraft connectivity, and ICEYE, an Earth observation company creating the world’s largest Synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) satellite constellation, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together to explore enabling continuous satellite communications for ICEYE’s SAR satellite constellation via Audacy’s inter-satellite data relay network. This will give ICEYE the ability to task its satellites to image a location only minutes before it passes a location of interest, anywhere on Earth, at all times.

I’m not big on MOUs, but Audacy is one of the most exciting up-and-comers in space today, so it’s worth noting when they sign something with a potential customer.
