Promoting security awareness and development.

UrtheCast is developing the world’s first Earth video platform, with data captured from space in full color. UrtheCast has built, launched, installed, and now operates two Earth Observation (EO) cameras aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Video and imagery data captured by these cameras is downlinked to ground stations across the planet and distributed directly to partners and customers, or displayed on the UrtheCast web platform. 

UrtheCast also announced plans to develop the world's first commercial optical+SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) EO constellation. In combination with UrtheCast’s suite of cameras aboard the ISS, and its two recently-purchased EO satellites, the UrtheCast Constellation will help the company realize its vision of democratizing the view of Earth from space.
