Ursa Space Partners with Aurora Insight to Identify RF Interference Through Data Fusion



Together, the companies provide advanced analytic solutions enriched with RF data to help organizations identify and mitigate RF interference.

Ithaca, NY, September 8, 2022 –  Aurora Insight, a commercial provider of RF data and analytics, and Ursa Space Systems, a leading satellite-analytics-as-a-service company, have partnered to help solve incidents of wireless communication interference. Together, the two companies detect and locate the disruptive signal, identify the culprit, and provide customers with the evidence they need to solicit action from their local authority.

Wireless communications and services based on RF signals are highly susceptible to interference, causing service disruptions that impact individuals, companies and government agencies. Whether the root cause is intentional or not, identifying the source is a complex but necessary effort to maintain full functionality in the constantly evolving RF environment.

Using satellites to continuously collect RF data over a wide range of frequencies, Aurora Insight captures unexpected activity in the spectrum and holds a vast historical archive of data that is mined using automated signal and anomaly detection algorithms. Pairing this RF data with Ursa Space’s capabilities in deep analytics enables the fusion of multiple sources of data, from imagery to open source information, and results in highly accurate identification of interference and offending emitters.

“In a society that depends on wireless connectivity, weaving RF data into an analysis can unlock incredibly valuable insights about the presence of problematic disruptions in the wireless environment, said Jennifer Alvarez, CEO of Aurora Insight.

“We recognize that an abundant amount of data is available today. What businesses and governments urgently need now is targeted answers, which can only be produced from advanced analysis,” said Alvarez. “Partnering with Ursa Space allows us to layer our RF data in new applications and provide decision-makers with the objective analysis and empirical evidence that they need to identify and mitigate interference issues faster.”

“Identifying and eliminating operational obstacles is a core priority for both companies,” said Jim Tran, Vice President of Global Security, Ursa Space. “In partnering with Aurora Insight, our combined interference hunting capabilities provide greater understanding of the RF environment, resulting in millions of dollars saved annually for our customers. The applications are built to serve organizations experiencing obstacles in communication, enabling adaptability with results that are comprehensive and timely.”
