Ursa Space Systems joins OGSystems' BlueGlass Platform

OGSystems (OGS), a leader in technology innovation for the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC), has partnered with Ursa Space Systems Inc. (Ursa), incorporating Observation as a Service into BlueGlass — OGSystems´ easily accessible location-based intelligence platform, the company said.

Ursa specializes in access, aggregation and analytics of global commercial satellite-based radar.

OGSystems´ BlueGlass platform models the world delivering insights through integrated data and artificial intelligence, by combining commercial remote sensing, big data, and artificial intelligence to deliver real-time insights through situational awareness, anomaly alerting, and reporting of activities that could pose risk to user operations.

Ursa delivers global economic intelligence to energy and financial enterprises, providing reliable information about areas of the world that are traditionally opaque. The company was formed in early 2015 by leaders in the satellite and software security fields with the vision to unlock the potential of data and insights derived from satellite imaging. Ursa is headquartered in Ithaca, NY.

OGSystems´ (OGS) mission is to provide technically advanced geospatial and security solutions to customers through constant innovation, effecting positive change in every engagement. In an industry accustomed to long and inefficient procurement cycles, OGS thinks differently – we are an alternative for DoD and IC clients seeking nimble companies to solve their most difficult problems. Headquartered in Chantilly, Virginia, with regional offices in St. Louis, Missouri, San Diego, California, and Portland, Oregon, OGS employs over 300 geospatial engineers, software developers, data scientists and mission subject matter experts.
