Commercial Space and Global Transparency: Military & Political Implications of the Ukrainian Conflict

The conflict in Ukraine has created an opportunity for commercial earth observation space companies to show how public access to remote sensing can improve transparency – enhancing public awareness and understanding of a global crisis by providing an unbiased lens through which we can each evaluate ‘the facts’ by seeing the imagery with our own eyes.

It is strategically noteworthy that images collected by commercial satellites have chronicled the buildup of Russian forces on Ukraine’s borders and provided unprecedented public insight into the ongoing crisis, providing intelligence previously only available from government sources, and not usually accessible to the public.

The crisis has showcased the remarkable technical capabilities of commercial space companies, whose high-resolution satellite images have been ubiquitous for the past several months as the crisis intensified.   From a cultural standpoint, commercial space is transforming global transparency and driving transformational change on a global scale.
