Giving the DoD's DIUx Program the EO Benefits of ICEYE

ICEYE has cemented in an agreement with the Defense Innovation Unit Experimental (DIUx) to purchase airborne Earth Observation (EO) data support services from ICEYE U.S.

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) launched DIUx in 2015 to build a bridge between commercial technological innovation and national security endeavors. Headquartered in Silicon Valley with offices in Boston, Austin, and the Pentagon, DIUx facilitates DoD’s efforts to identify and work with commercial companies, including ICEYE U.S., to help solve national defense problems.

Earlier this year, ICEYE announced its expansion into the U.S. with an entity focused on delivering EO data in long-form to its current and prospective clients. ICEYE U.S. is also developing data analytics capabilities to support more varied industry specific services.

Mike Lyons, the CEO of ICEYE U.S., noted that having just opened the company's U.S. subsidiary, ICEYE U.S. is on a fast-track in providing services that will help the public sector. DIUx is tackling some of the nation’s most challenging problems and ICEYE is eager to provide them with data support services that will help in solving those problems.
