UrtheCast Presents Its Future Constellations at Euroconsult’s Summit on EO Business

Satellite constellations — hot topics du jour in the space industry — take center stage at this year’s World Satellite Week, during the 8th annual Summit on Earth Observation Business in Paris, France.

On Friday, Sept. 16, UrtheCast President and CEO, Wade Larson, will discuss UrtheCast’s planned constellations, UrtheDaily™ and OptiSAR™ — both unprecedented offerings for the future of the Earth Observation industry.

While UrtheCast was awarded Euroconsult’s Strategic Transaction of the Year prize in 2015 for the company’s acquisition of Deimos-Imaging, this year, UrtheCast is pleased to have been named by Euroconsult as one of the top NewSpace startups to watch.
