Ursa delivers valuable economic intelligence to decision makers. We make sense of space-based insights for enterprise customers. Our observations help analysts fill in the gaps when there are no readily-available sources of information. We specialize in reliably delivering results on a weekly or on-demand cadence.

What makes Ursa so reliable? We use space-based data from radar satellites as the source of our timely reports. Radar works through clouds and at night, allowing us to collect information about activities on the Earth rain or shine. Using our established network of suppliers, we can deliver information about anywhere on the Earth, every 12 hours.

Ursa was founded in early 2015 by leaders in the satellite and computer security fields with the vision of serving customers with valuable insights derived from satellite imagery.
