Satellogic and Astraea Distribute Earth Observation Data to Ukraine
Satellogic, 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 data directly to the government of Ukraine, allied governments, and humanitarian organisations on the ground.
Earth Observation Data to support Ukraine
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 neighbouring 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.

“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.
