Space-Based Commercial Geospatial Intelligence and its Impact on Ukraine and Modern Warfare

Ukraine may be the first large-scale war where commercial, space-based assets are feeding a steady stream of geospatial intelligence into the public domain. This commercial intelligence is revolutionizing our conception of what can be achieved with open source information. It is providing a unique perspective into a dynamically evolving situation, supporting allied forces and public with better visibility, and being used to push back against grey information and false flag operations. Join us as this expert panel discusses the uses of commercial Earth Observation, SAR, and RF data in modern warfare.
