Understanding change in uncharted territories

We leverage our extensive satellite network to supplement existing capabilities and guarantee comprehensive coverage of critical locations. You can be ready for the unexpected to occur.



What steps are Indian and Chinese military forces taking that could signal whether tension between the two sides is escalating along a contested border region high in the Himalayas?

Ursa Space monitors key military installations for signs of significant change that can be further analyzed for verification purpose.

Our service detected activity strongly suggesting that India and China were strengthening their capabilities at forward supporting airbases.


Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam

Did Ethiopia fill the reservoir of a hydropower dam on the Blue Nile angering downstream neighbors Egypt and Sudan, both of whom fear the mega-project will reduce their access to water?

Ursa Space quantifies the water surface area behind the dam to know whether Ethiopia takes the decisive step of closing the dam gates each year during the summer rainy season.

Our radar-based measurements indicated Ethiopia began filling the reservoir for the first time before the move was officially acknowledged.


Saudi Aramco Drone Attack

What is the extent of damage inflicted on Saudi Aramco’s oil infrastructure from an unexpected drone attack, and for how long can inventories sustain crude oil exports before shipments fall precipitously?

Ursa Space’s rapid response provided an initial damage assessment and regular updates, along with near-real-time measurements of the country’s crude oil inventories.

Our work showed repairs underway and crude inventories rebounding two weeks after the attack, suggesting a faster recovery than originally forecast.
