Germany will spend €400 million ($465 million) on the construction of “up to three new spy satellites” for its intelligence service.

The country’s parliament (budget committee (Bundestag)) has already approved financing of the costly project, according to Die Welt.
Last year, German news outlets reported that the foreign intelligence agency would receive one espionage satellite. However, according to recent reports, the total may reach three.

The new satellites are to be used by Germany’s foreign intelligence agency, the Federal Intelligence Service (BND), “to provide quick and autonomous information to be able to make independent and up-to-date assessments of the situation,” Die Welt said.
