Explosion at Nord Stream 2. Two ships invisible to radars were discovered

SpaceKnow’s systems analyzing the satellite data have detected two large ships with tracking devices disabled in the Nord Stream 2 area a few days before his damage in September – reports the Wired portal. The company communicated its findings to NATO officials who asked for more information.

According to an analysis carried out by SpaceKnow, a company dealing with satellite data monitoring, two ships, each ranging from 95 to 130 meters in length, swam within a few kilometers of the Nord Stream 2 spill sites.

NATO spokeswoman Oana Lungescu did not comment on Wired’s “details of the sources used,” but confirmed that the Alliance believed the incident was “a deliberate and irresponsible act of sabotage“and therefore increased NATO presence in the Baltic and North Seas.

SpaceKnow has determined that 25 vessels were crossing the Nord Stream 2 spill area in the weeks prior to damage, but only two of them had Automatic Identification System (AIS) transponders disabledwhich, in accordance with international law, must be used by large vessels in order to navigate and avoid potential collisions with other vessels.
