The Finnish company will provide access to its satellites for the Armed Forces of Ukraine

A world leader in continuous monitoring with radar satellite images, Finnish company ICEYE will provide access to its constellation of satellites, which will allow the Ukrainian Armed Forces to receive images with a high frequency of return visits, the Finnish company said in a press release on Thursday.
It is specified that the Finns have signed a contract with the Serhiy Prytula Charitable Foundation, which will provide the government of Ukraine with the possibility of satellite imagery.
“As part of the agreement, ICEYE will transfer all the capabilities of one of its satellites already in orbit for use by the Ukrainian government over the region. The satellite will be operated by ICEYE. In addition, ICEYE will provide access to its constellation of satellites, which will allow the Armed Forces of Ukraine to receive radar satellite images of critical locations with a high frequency of return visits.
At any given time, most of the Earth is covered in clouds or darkness. Unlike traditional Earth observation satellites, the small ICEYE radar imaging satellites can provide high-resolution images of the Earth during the day, at night and through clouds, the report said.
“In other words, they can collect images and data from any part of the Earth several times a day with the necessary reliability to make important decisions,” says the Finnish company.
To date, ICEYE has successfully launched 21 spacecraft and operates the world’s largest fleet of commercial radar satellites.
