Ubisoft is to use images taken by the spectacularly named IKONOS satellite as backdrops for Tom Clancy’s HAWX, the company’s announced.

According to a press statement, the IKONOS – makes us hard – satellite has been used for “US national security, mapping, air and marine transportation, environmental monitoring and insurance risk management.”

IKONOS – doesn’t fail – began snapping images in late 1999. Some of the satellite’s images can be seen here.
