Ukrainian volunteer Serhiy Prytula Charity Foundation collected $20 million of donations to buy three “Bayraktars”. But due to the courtesy of Baykar Technologies, Ukraine gets them for free. So, Sergiy bought access to a satellite of the ICEYE network for a year that will help Ukrainian surveillance to prevent attacks by the russian army.
- Also, Ukrainian spacetech entrepreneur Max Polyakov supported the initiative.
- The potential opportunities of using satellite for the Ministry of Armed Forces:
independent planning and implementation of covert operations
monitoring of russian military activity in the areas of operations
instant receipt of necessary data
the possibility of supporting operations in LIVE mode
detailed picture under any weather conditions
