Satellogic and Astraea Enable Direct Collection Access for Emergency Response in Ukraine
Satellogic Inc. (NASDAQ:SATL), a leader in sub-meter resolution satellite imagery collection, announced a collaboration with Astraea, a geospatial and AI analysis software company, to distribute critical Earth Observation (“EO”) data directly to the Ukrainian government, allied governments, and humanitarian organizations on the ground.
Satellogic is providing its Daily Collection Access service to the Ukrainian government and allied nations. This service delivers a direct stream of high-resolution satellite imagery collections over Ukraine’s sovereign territory as well as neighboring areas of interest. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has spread across the country, targeting multiple cities and critical infrastructure. High-resolution satellite imagery offers detailed visibility at scale to monitor military movement, assess post-event damage, plan civilian evacuation routes, and evaluate effective distribution of resources.
“Satellogic is working directly with the government of Ukraine and allied nations to protect the innocent lives of Ukrainian citizens and residents. This collaboration will enable us to distribute time-critical information quickly and securely to those actively involved in ground operations and refugee missions,” said Emiliano Kargieman, CEO of Satellogic.
This data will also be made available to approved humanitarian and non-governmental organizations via a simplified and secure interface provided by Astraea. Request an account here: https://ukraineobserver.earth.
“We are honored to be working with Satellogic on this critical effort. A good portion of our Engineering team is Ukrainian and is on the ground in Kyiv and other places in the country. Hence, this is deeply personal for us. We are focused day and night to help those we work with and care deeply about – and to leverage the power of EO data to save lives, protect innocent civilians and undo the damage caused by conflict,” said Brendan Richardson, Co-Founder and CEO of Astraea.
