Wars and local conflicts, nuclear weapons testing, the abuse of natural resources, greenhouse gases, forest fires, accidents at critical infrastructure facilities - all these are incomplete anthropogenic factors affecting the environment. An increase in population density and infrastructural complications make humanity increasingly sensitive to natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and hurricanes. All this leads to constant challenges and threats to the national interests of states in the field of security and defense. Ukraine is no exception. To make timely decisions to prevent negative environmental changes and comply with environmental safety requirements, environmental monitoring systems are being introduced. Integration of monitoring types allows increasing its efficiency, operativeness and reliability. The first steps to creating such a complex system are carried out at the National Center for Control and Testing of Space Facilities (NCCTSF), combining methods of remote sensing of the Earth with ground-based geophysical methods of special control. Information received and processed as soon as possible is provided to state bodies. However, complex processing has not yet become everyday practice, although its relevance is constantly increasing. Possibilities of using monitoring methods during military depots explosions are shown.
