Ursa provides transparency into complex markets, enabling people in financial services, energy and industrial sectors to make more confident, informed decisions.

In 2017, we pioneered true transparency into global oil storage with a focus on China, Middle East/North Africa and the Caribbean. We are pleased to announce an expansion to our global offering. Coming very soon in 2018, we will be adding Europe, North America, South America, Greater Asia and sub-saharan Africa to deliver the most robust global oil storage coverage available.


What differentiates us


We measure the same tanks at the same terminals each week - every week. Our extensive radar experience and use of SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) allows us to collect over 99.99% of planned measurements. This takes the guesswork out of the product for our customers, because we do not interpolate or estimate across different sites on a weekly basis. Thus, Ursa offers the most reliable and comprehensive global oil storage product available.

Ursa's mission is to deliver global economic transparency that fundamentally changes how markets move and people manage risk. We do that by providing the most reliable and up-to-date information for areas of the world that traditionally have poor or nonexistent data.

Our global reach, unique processing tools, exclusive partnerships, integration of 3rd party data and extensive radar experience enable us to deliver an industry-leading product that helps our customers make better decisions faster, reduce their risk and differentiate in fast-paced markets.

Based in Ithaca, NY, Ursa was founded in 2014 by leaders in software security and satellite fields with the vision to unlock the potential of the world's data and insights.
