EO SAR Imagery Prices Limit Opportunity - NSR Dec 2018
"In theory, radar imagery for Earth Observation is far superior to optical. With imagery capable of capturing scenes at night and penetrating clouds, SAR overcomes many challenges inherent to imaging the Earth with passive optical sensors.

"It would seem that investors are banking on these capabilities for increased coverage and insights from SAR imagery given recent funding announcements from Iceye, and Ursa Space. Revisit and analytics are cited as key drivers, with many working to develop algorithms for analyzing and monitoring assets, even across traditional vertical markets.

"However, in practice, SAR revenues and market penetration remain relatively low, and NSR does not expect radar to overtake or greatly outpace the optical opportunity anytime soon."

"When examining EO data adoption, one must consider resolution, revisit, and pricing as key customer-decision factors."
