US administration spoke with Elon Musk about using Starlink internet in Ukraine.
SpaceX sent terminals to Ukraine to improve military communication.
Russia tried to jam Starlink, but SpaceX hardened software in response.
On Saturday, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated that the US administration has spoken with Elon Musk concerning the usage of Starlink satellite internet in Ukraine.
Last month, SpaceX announced that it had taken efforts to prevent Ukraine’s military from utilising its Starlink service to control drones in the region during the country’s war with Russia.
When asked whether the US had asked Musk, the company’s CEO, not to limit the use of Starlink capabilities by Ukraine’s military during an interview on “Meet the Press with Chuck Todd” that will air on Sunday, Blinken said, “Well, I can’t share any conversations we’ve had other than to say we’ve had conversations.”
SpaceX has privately sent truckloads of Starlink terminals to Ukraine, allowing the country’s military to communicate by plugging them in and linking them to the almost 4,000 satellites SpaceX has launched into low-Earth orbit thus far.
Russia has attempted to jam Starlink communications in the region, but SpaceX has responded by hardening the service’s software, according to Musk.
