The military intelligence of Ukraine started using the "people's satellite" on September 24, 2022. Since then, the Security and Defense Forces of the state have been receiving the necessary intelligence from space.

During the 5 months of use of "ICEYE", employees of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine conducted space radar reconnaissance of almost 1,000 areas of the location of units of the aggressor state in temporarily occupied and other territories that were of interest to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

During this time, the resource of the spacecraft allowed detecting 360 tents in the locations of the Russian occupation army, as well as 7,321 objects of enemy military and special equipment, in particular:

  • 27 helicopters;
  • 6 OTRK "Iskander";
  • 36 air defense systems "S300";
  • 12 "Pantsyr S1" air defense system;

Thanks to the capabilities of "ICEYE", a large part of this list has been destroyed and reflected in the daily reports of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The employees of the military intelligence of Ukraine once again express their gratitude to the entire Ukrainian society, which joined the collection of funds for the spacecraft, to every volunteer who provides daily assistance to the defenders of Ukraine, and to the Serhiy Prytula Charity Fund. Such eyes in orbit make it possible to detect and burn camouflaged Russian military equipment, weapons, and personnel around the clock and in any weather.
