We provide analysis of activity on our planet, rapidly transforming raw data into easy-to-use insights.
Source Data Access + Metadata
Brokerage, standardization, and formatting of imagery and metadata.
You want to search and download satellite imagery.
Ursa Space allows you to easily source imagery from around the globe from our imagery catalog.
Over 10 million images available!
You want to know about available imagery based on metadata (e.g., resolution, imaging mode, collection geometry).
Ursa Space allows you to query our imagery catalog by metadata and retrieve the results.
Available via API or the Ursa Platform.
You want access to satellite imagery collected on a future date based on your choice of place and time.
Ursa Space allows you to task satellites from our virtual constellation, as a one-time or recurring collection.
You want to monitor an area and find out when a particular event occurs.
Ursa Space monitors a broad area for signals that trigger a more targeted approach (e.g., high-res imagery) to verify the provisional results.
Advanced Image Processing
Analytics as a service for measurements derived from imagery data.
You want to visualize the change that occurred in a certain location from one image to the next.
Ursa Space colors pixels blue (arrivals) and red (departures), while the hue depends on the extent of change.
Delivered in GeoTIFF format.
You want access to SAR imagery across multiple vendors or formats, but don’t have in-house SAR processing expertise.
Ursa Space can turn multiple data formats into one common vendor-independent format, which is then delivered and ready to be used.
Delivered in Vendor-defined format (e.g., HDF5, COSAR, etc.) or processed by Ursa into a Sensor-Independent Complex Data (SICD) NITF file.
You want a 3-dimensional view of a location to understand changes in elevation.
Ursa Space generates localized elevation models from SAR.
You want a SAR image to be colored so that certain land-use types are apparent (e.g., green vegetation, blue ocean).
Ursa Space generates an RGB image from multi-polarization SAR images to depict land-use types.
Delivered in GeoTIFF format.
You want to monitor vessels close to shore, for example around a port or coastline.
Ursa Space defines boundaries between land and water to precisely define areas of interest as part of a vessel detection service.
Available as API-queryable vector data, or on-the-fly generation for slant plane or ground plane rasters.
You want a SAR image to appear similar with the perspective of an optical image.
Ursa Space generates a SAR image from the point of view of the satellite, with an optical-equivalent incidence angle.
Delivered in GeoTIFF format.
Descriptive Analytics Services
Data Fusion as a service for measurements in context.
You want to understand trends at (a) location(s) that can be derived from changes in the presence of manmade objects over time.
Ursa Space creates indices to normalize the data, allowing for scalability and historical analysis.
You want to know about the type and number of aircraft within an area of interest.
Ursa Space can detect and classify aircraft by broad category.
You want to know about any possible changes to an area of interest over time.
Ursa Space pinpoints the specific places where change has occurred, distinguishing between additions or subtractions.
You want to quantify some aspect of an asset’s physical dimensions.
Ursa Space can make direct measurements of different objects, which can turn into the foundation for a variety of solutions (e.g., oil inventories).
You want to know the types of objects present in a scene.
Ursa Space builds refined models trained on labelled data to recognize and classify objects.
You want to find objects in a variety of challenging environments.
Ursa Space scans images to identify these objects and provide their coordinates.
You want to know about an oil spill’s location and receive near real-time updates.
Ursa Space detects an oil spill and provides ongoing information on the slick’s size and shape.
You want to know about the number of vehicles located in an area(s).
Ursa Space counts passenger vehicles in areas of interests (e.g., parking lots) through an automated process creating a scalable product.
You want to monitor a location for the presence of vessels, including those without AIS data signals (i.e., “dark ships”).
Ursa Space aggregates multiple data sources to detect vessels over time.
You want to detect and classify vessels of interest.
Ursa Space automatically identifies and classifies vessels by type.
You want to track a vessel of interest, regardless of location or AIS data status.
Ursa Space monitors a moving vessel, and provides ship coordinates, path forecasts, and satellite imagery.
You want to know the surface size of a body of water.
Ursa Space measures the perimeter of a water surface (e.g., reservoir).
Market Specific Insights & Datasets
Actionable reports and indicators.
You want to analyze trends in the auto industry for macro-level insights.
Ursa Space monitors automobile manufacturing facilities for observable, physical activity that can signal changes in production.
Weekly auto production trends for 19 major manufacturers, covering production lots in the Americas, Europe and Asia. Available via API and CSV.
You want access to global oil inventory data that is comprehensive, impartial, and timely.
Ursa Space measures the amount of oil stored in floating-top tanks worldwide without limitations of cloud-cover or time of day.
Weekly direct measurements of 22,000 tanks and more than 6.5 billion barrels of capacity in 123 countries. .99 correlation to EIA’s Cushing data. Delivered via API, CSV, and PDF report.
You want to know regular updates on key port metrics.
Ursa Space combines multiple data sources to gauge port traffic against historical levels.
Weekly delivery of ship detections, oil inventories and activity monitoring of staging yards, car ports, etc.
You want to monitor critical infrastructure (e.g., pipelines) for right-of-way encroachments using cost effective techniques.
Ursa Space identifies areas of changes within the footprint that are significant enough to warrant more detailed examination.
