 Tips and Tools for EO Enthusiasts, Industry News and Updates: Monthly Recap of Groundstation.Space | May 2022 edition

This is the third issue of our monthly digest.  As usual, we make an overview of the news and insights we shared with you this month.


At, we continue to share news and insights about the use of satellite data technologies during the war in Ukraine. This month we talked about Starlink in Ukraine and did overviews of satellite images that captured the consequences of the war. We are also reminded about the possibilities that you can take to help the people of Ukraine.
