The St. Louis-based research consortium will host Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) workshops in partnership with Earth Observation leader ICEYE US as a model for collaboration with the geospatial industry.

St. Louis & Irvine, March 28, 2024 - The Taylor Geospatial Institute (TGI), a consortium of institutions working to fuel a revolution in geospatial research, and ICEYE US, builder and operator of ICEYE’s growing constellation of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellites in the United States, announced today that TGI will deliver workshops to expose academic, industry, and government researchers in the TGI community to a vital geospatial technology such as SAR. The partnership with ICEYE US is a powerful example of the collaborations TGI is building through the newly launched Taylor Geospatial Institute Industry Partners Program.

Registration is open for the first event, “Fundamentals of SAR Workshop”, through the ICEYE-TGI partnership, happening May 14–15, 2024 on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis. Foremost SAR and remote sensing expert Tom Ager will lead the workshop. Sessions will showcase the remarkable capabilities of SAR data to current and future geospatial researchers and will make the unique information more accessible to the St. Louis geospatial community.
