New satellite imagery of ground reality

We have come up with new satellite images of the war in Russia and Ukraine. Still supplied by Planet, these images show, among other things, a new episode in the war with a clearly stated desire to target Ukrainian civilians, as evidenced by the destruction of the Mariupol Theater to destroy Ukraine’s industrial infrastructure. Systematic bombing of the Azovstal metallurgical plant in Mariupol. These images also show attacks in Ukraine, especially sites that fell into the hands of Russian forces, such as Serpent’s Island or Kherson Airport.

War in Ukraine: Satellite imagery that shows reality on our soil

Its essay Remy Decort Published on 01/03/2022

The first satellite image, hours after the attack began and gained by Russia in the invasion of Ukraine, does not show the full extent of the damage that the Russian armed forces have done to Ukraine’s military infrastructure. However, we see the first effects of missiles, the destruction of buildings and equipment, or even the activities of the Ukrainian sabotage, for example bridges.

There has never been an armed conflict between two nations so closely followed and mediated by many satellites.Earth observation Commercial and personal. These satellite operators and earth imaging companies provide intelligence and information to everyone – previously only governments had access to it and they rarely made it public.

Welcome to the new space age

This conflict highlights their role Constellations Satellites whose images almost in real time show the conflict between Ukraine and Russia and the reality on the ground – official rhetoric or propaganda policies are now forced to consider it.

However, it should not be forgotten that all these satellite operators are in the market to sell geospatial data with high addition cost. However, if the free broadcast images show each other’s strengths to the media and the general public, you should know that they are capable of doing better!

Let us take the example of wide-field image provided by Planet. At first glance, their main interest is to cover a very large area by offer Resolution Up to 50 centimeters! But did you know that the planet is able to take pictures of the entire surface of the earth every day and observe the same space in different spectral bands, at different times of the day. All the services we can imagine as a result of this In the case of the Ukrainian conflict, the planet could observe near real-time Loss Russian forces make a list of the conditions of the road, rail and power distribution network, Russian forces detect but identify small changes or offer video or images in relief.

Russia-Ukraine: Image of Satellite Conflict

Some “wide field” images are obtained by Earth observation satellites They are constellations Which shows the impressive deployment of Russian forces on the border with Ukraine.

Earth observation satellites, whether civilian, scientific or military, are at the forefront of monitoring the deployment of Russian forces near the border. Ukraine. Satellite images of the most powerful military satellites, the details of which can reach only a few centimeters, are not explicitly disclosed, and private companies do not hesitate to show reality on the ground.

In fact, these companies, mainly American, have several satellites Orbit In addition to the military operations in the vicinity of Ukraine, numerous pictures of the impressive deployment of Russian forces are reduced and broadcast almost daily, which began.Petni 2021.

Military space data is accessible to all

This is significant in the case of Planet Company which provides us with some satellite imagery that it acquires every day. Some of these images have a resolution of 50 centimeters, which makes it possible to see objects from only 1.20 to 1.50 meters! The images provided by Planet are probably not the ones that give the best resolution. The door Every movement of the Russian unit as well as Ukraine.
