Thursday Morning Conversation with Rafal Modrzewski of Iceye

By | September 1, 2021

      In this week’s Thursday Morning Conversation, Via Satellite managing editor Rachel Jewett chats with Iceye CEO and Co-Founder Rafal Modrzewski. Iceye is one of Via’s 10 Hottest Companies, and sells Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery and subsequent insights on a platform. This monitoring can help customers make informed, data-driven decisions to address time-critical challenges in industries and uses such as border security, flood monitoring and oil spill clean-up.

      In this conversation, Modrzewski tells the story of Iceye as part of the Finnish space industry and gives a very thorough answer to the question “What is SAR?” He also discusses the global microchip shortage, and how affecting climate change has always been part of Iceye’s mission. In typical TMC fashion, the discussion goes beyond satellite, and Modrzewski shares a podcast recommendation and his interest in the Netflix show “Formula 1: Drive to Survive.”
