UrtheCast Corp. is an international technology company that is developing the world’s first Earth video platform, with data captured from space in full color. Working with prominent aerospace partners across the globe, UrtheCast has built, launched, installed, and now operates two Earth Observation (EO) cameras aboard the International Space Station. This year, UrtheCast also announced plans to develop the world’s first commercial optical+SAR EO constellation, slated to be deployed in 2019 and 2020. In combination with UrtheCast’s suite of cameras aboard the ISS, and its two recently-purchased EO satellites, Deimos-1 and Deimos-2, the UrtheCast Constellation will help the company realize its vision of democratizing the EO industry. To make these powerful resources more accessible and user-friendly, UrtheCast’s intuitive web-based platform will harness the cloud to provide access to camera tasking, data archives, analytics, and specialized EO applications. By opening up access to its deep trove of EO data, UrtheCast will allow organizations and individuals alike to monitor the environment, manage humanitarian relief efforts, organize social events, manage natural resources, and much more.
