According to Reuters, SpaceX has contracted with the Department of Defense’s National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) to create a network of hundreds of spy satellites that can operate as a swarm and track targets on the ground. Here are all the details.

The Reuters report, citing five sources with knowledge of the program, builds on an earlier report by The Wall Street Journal that revealed SpaceX signed a $1.8 billion contract with an unnamed entity in 2021. This network, called Starshield, will be able to collect continuous images from around the Earth for US intelligence, using a mix of large imaging satellites to collect data and relay satellites to transmit information. This has the potential to create a situation where “no one can hide,” a source told Reuters. Neither SpaceX nor the NRO directly confirmed the company’s involvement in the project, but an NRO spokesman told Reuters: “National “The Reconnaissance Office is developing the world’s most capable, diverse and resilient space-based intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance system ever.”
