Earth-i, Ursa Space Systems Join OGSystems’ BlueGlass Platform

By Kendall Russell | June 5, 201. OGSystems announced that it has formed partnerships with both Ursa Space Systems and Earth-i to improve its BlueGlass platform.

Earth-i will incorporate video and imagery into BlueGlass, a location-based intelligence platform, while Ursa Space Systems will incorporate observation as a service.

According to Omar Balkissoon, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and co-founder of OGSystems, BlueGlass will coalesce Ursa Space System’s observations with natural language generation to perform basic imagery analysis reporting.

This partnership also follows Earth-i’s recent announcement that it will launch and operate Europe’s first commercial constellation that offers both full-color video and imagery. BlueGlass combines commercial remote sensing, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to deliver real-time insights through situational awareness, anomaly alerting, and reporting of activities that could pose risk to user operations.

“Working closely with OGSystems is validation of our belief that the real value in high resolution satellite imagery is in the truly actionable insights that can be derived from it,” commented Richard Blain, CEO of Earth-i.
