RS Metrics, the leading company for satellite-imagery derived analytics and trading signals for ESG, metal equities, global supply trends, and price forecast announced today that the company has started to provide MetalSignals™ SAR, the world’s first synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) powered commodity inventories dataset covering bulk commodities. The satellite SAR imagery and measurements are provided by ICEYE and its coverage includes major ports in China and iron ore producing countries (Australia, Brazil & South Africa.) covering over 90% of the global supply and expanding to cover bauxite & coal. Product expansion to cover raw materials in addition to the existing coverage of refined base metals (Aluminum, Copper, Zinc) & Steel provides metal and equity traders, producers, consumers & asset managers insights needed for price forecasting, hedging & portfolio optimization.

This dataset will be available through RS Metrics and its partners including CME, Bloomberg, SGX Singapore, SMM, Nasdaq / Quandl. RS Metrics and ICEYE also announced their intention to exploring their expansion into energy markets by covering coal inventories globally through SAR.
MetalSignals™ interprets satellite imagery through advanced AI and machine-learning models to generate timely measures of global metals stockpiles from over 500 smelters, refineries, terminals, mines, and storage facilities. ICEYE SAR satellites form a constellation that enables unmatched imaging revisit rates on a global scale. Specifically, ICEYE will provide RS Metrics multi-angle SAR satellite imaging to cover the global iron ore supply chain. In addition, RS Metrics will be able to track supply disruptions and quantify the impact more frequently through the ICEYE constellation. As the ICEYE SAR Constellation grows, it will provide RS Metrics MetalSignals™ previously unavailable imaging capabilities and access, allowing quick tactical acquisitions as well as frequent global revisit rates.
By introducing SAR MetalSignals™, quantitative and fundamental analysts, traders, and portfolio managers will now have access to here-to unavailable iron-ore inventories information to predict metals commodity futures prices and model associated movements in equities, currencies, and foreign exchange prices.
“RS Metrics’ patented and market leading PAAS platform has always been at the cutting edge of geo-spatial analytics” said Maneesh Sagar, CEO of RS Metrics. “Our partnership with ICEYE allows us to address customer’s key pain-points around optical imagery data – reliability and frequency – because radar imaging makes it possible for us to track locations through clouds and even in total darkness, we can now provide our customers with unprecedented access to the data.”
“Moreover, as the world’s forerunner in small SAR satellites, ICEYE’s mission aligns closely with that of RS Metrics, which pioneered the geo-spatial data analytics market in 2010 as reported by CNBC. We are always excited to provide our customers access to disruptive new technologies that enhance their modelling and analysis, and our partnership with ICEYE fulfills that promise.”
