Ursa Space Systems Inc. (Ursa) is a Space 3.0 analytics-as-a-service company that brings transparency to global markets to help traders and analysts in the finance and energy industries make more informed decisions.

Ursa released the world’s first comprehensive weekly China oil inventory report in May, added the Caribbean and MENA regions in September and plans to have global coverage in early 2018. Ursa uses space-based data from radar satellites as the source of their timely reports. Radar works through clouds and at night, allowing collection of information about activities on the Earth rain or shine.

Based in Ithaca, NY, Ursa was founded in 2014 by leaders in the satellite and software security fields with the vision to unlock the potential of data and insights derived from radar satellite imaging.
