In the Partner Program, Ursa Space leverages our relationship with multiple satellite providers to task, receive, store, and process source imagery from a database of nearly 10 million SAR images. Billie will be instrumental in bringing in best in class talent to foster these relationships and expand our database of imagery.
Billie’s extensive knowledge of the satellite industry began over 20 years ago at CBS Affiliate newscast in Washington, where she produced live shots and scheduled satellite feeds. Billie subsequently worked for the video broadcast divisions of Washington International Teleport and Verestar, before joining SES Americom selling satellite capacity to both broadcasters and data service providers. At SES, Billie spearheaded government contracts and was pivotal in merging SES New Skies and Americom Government Services.
“While our platform will help Government users make better informed decisions more quickly, the people and the culture within Ursa Space truly make it special. I am excited for the opportunity to join the Ursa Space team.”
