In that sense, in the announcement, the company reported the appeal of the cancellation of its license: “This is because we consider that the arguments presented by the National State for that action do not reflect the truth of the facts.”
Likewise, LeoLabs discusses the rumors about the origin of its capitals, and explains that “it is not British, but American, a fact that is recognized even in special publications made by the universities of the state of the Republic in Argentina.”
“The capabilities of the ground station are not those detailed by the National State and which are communicated to the population through TELAM Digital and other press media.”
In the same line, the company says that the radar “does not have the capacity to track missiles, aircraft, ships or land vehicles, nor monitor military activities.” In addition, they added that the radar also does not have the ability “to track or intercept satellite communications or do any kind of eavesdropping.”
“We would like to explain that since June 26, the ground station has been completely inactive, a situation confirmed by national officials traveling to Tierra del Fuego,” they explained in the note.
Also, the company emphasized that, despite the disarmament, they did not admit any violation of the regulation.
Finally, LeoLabs explained that, once the electronics are removed, they will proceed to:
First, ask the Provincial Energy Directorate to completely cut off the energy supply to the ground station: “This interruption of supply unfortunately cannot be requested immediately, because the security cameras will show the withdrawal activities of the electronics and need to use energy during work.
Second, the company must, within the scope of the General Inspection of Justice, “transfer the shares of the company’s current partners to two companies of the same group, but residing in the United States.”
Finally, they will ask the Ministry of Production and Environment “to suspend the procedural deadlines until the situation regarding the approval of LeoLabs is fully resolved at the national level.”
