Latest Ursa Space Systems News

Umbra Space partners With Ursa Space Systems

May 19, 2023

By Umbra Joins Ursa Space’s Virtual Constellation Ursa Space Systems, a global satellite intelligence infrastructure company, and Umbra, a technology company that offers intelligence data as a service to commercial and government customers, jointly announced that they are partnering to bring advanced synthetic aperture radar (SAR) analytics to a global market through Ursa’s suite of subscription and custom intelligence products. The two companies first teamed up to serve customers in late 2022 when Umbra initially began offering high-resolution SAR imagery for commercial use, and Ursa signed on as its first commercial customer. Umbra data has played an integral role in several of Ursa’s core global monitoring capabilities, including global oil storage assessment and vessel detection. Ursa is also using Umbra’s data to provide their customers with flood analytics — which are critically important to provide situational awareness for emergency responders on the ground. Flood data is also being used by Ursa customers to speed up the insurance claim process for those impacted by severe weather events. Ursa cited data quality, API maturity and documentation, and open licensing as primary reasons why they chose to partner with Umbra. The data provided by Umbra adds additional capacity to Ursa’s Virtual Constellation, the world’s largest database of satellite imagery from the most-trusted SAR, optical, and Radio Frequency data vendors around the globe. Ursa also credits Umbra’s Compensated Phase History Data (CPHD) for providing an even more raw form of the data than is typically provided by other vendors, giving Ursa the ability to develop novel derived products through ongoing research and development efforts. Umbra is supporting a growing number of inspiring and innovative organizations monitoring the Earth in unprecedented fidelity. Umbra’s data can identify and monitor surface-level changes globally and be used for a variety of efforts including remote wildlife habitat protection, pollution and plastic waste tracking, oil spill detection, military intelligence gathering, live flooding estimation during storms and more.
