Czech army to open satellite center to serve intelligence, NATO

The Czech Republic’s army plans to open a new satellite center to serve the country’s military intelligence and NATO, AP said. The center will receive images of the situation on the ground around the globe from satellites. They will be then analyzed and provided for the alliance’s defense planning and the local army’s use, including its foreign missions. The system, known as SATCEN CR, is also planned to help the civilian sector in the case of natural disasters. The military spy agency said on Tuesday it should open on July 1 and become fully operational by the end of 2019.
