Dauria Space Scales Back

This screen shot of the Dauria Geo image search cloud-based tool and API was developed through a collaboration with remote sensing experts at Development Seed. Dauria has scaled back plans and shuttered offices in the west because of competition, sanctions and the retraction of the ruble.

According to a recent report in The Moscow Times, Russia’s first private commercial satellite company, Dauria Aerospace, has retracted, closing U.S. and German offices as well as abandoning plans for a network of small Earth observation satellites.

Dauria Aerospace and Elecnor Deimos of Spain had announced plans in May 2014 to establish a nine-satellite constellation called Deimos Perseus to offer multispectral Earth imagery on a daily basis. The goal to establish the constellation by the end of 2016 was curtailed by low funding, U.S. competition, current sanctions against Russia and the collapse of the ruble.

Dauria had developed a cloud-based Dauria Geo application programming interface (API) for satellite imagery viewing, monitoring and analysis out of its offices at the NASA Ames Research Park in Mountain View, Calif. Dauria was working with Development Seed on an imagery browser aimed at delivering their own imagery as well as imagery from partners. The office was shuttered, and the website dauriageo.com is no longer accessible.

The company plans to continue with an altered business plan that focuses on exporting satellite hardware to the West.
