ICEYE Satellite, Purchased with Donations from Ukrainians, Helped Identify and Destroy Thousands of russian Military Equipment
Ukraine’s military intelligence started using ‘people's satellite’ on September 24, 2022. Since then, the Security and Defence Forces of the state have been receiving the necessary intelligence data from space.
For the five months of using ICEYE, the officers of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine have conducted a space radar intelligence of almost 1,000 locations of russian units in temporarily captured and other territories that were of interest to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
During this time, the resource of the satellite allowed to detect 360 tents in the locations of the russian army, as well as 7,321 units of enemy military and special equipment, in particular: 45 aircraft, 27 helicopters, six Iskander missile systems, 36 S-300 air defence missile systems, 12 Pantsir S1air defence systems, 11 radar stations, ten pontoon crossings.
Thanks to ICEYE capabilities, a large part of this list has been destroyed and reflected in the daily reports of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The employees of Ukraine’s military intelligence once again expressed their gratitude to all Ukrainian people who joined the fund-raising campaign for the satellite, to every volunteer who provides daily assistance to the defenders of Ukraine, and the Serhiy Prytula Charity Foundation. Such eyes in orbit make it possible to detect and destroy camouflaged russian military equipment, weapons, and personnel 24 hours a day and in any weather conditions.
Glory to Ukraine!
