A year since Vladimir Putin launched his illegal invasion of Ukraine, many have called it the first world war of the twenty-first century. The conflict has seen a variety of technologies brought to the battlefield, including US software company Palantir’s digital targeting system and commercial drones such as the Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 and Russian Lantset ‘kamikaze’ drones that can loiter over enemy vehicles or military stations before crashing into them and detonating their laser-guided warheads. The conflict has also seen a number of Ukrainian civilians turn to mobile apps and online services like Diia or secure chat system eVorog (“eEnemy”) to upload images and geolocation coordinates of different Russian troop movements and share information about suspected collaborators, invaders and saboteurs. TI takes a look at 10 of the most critical new technology keeping civilians safer during the war.
