PRODUCTS & SERVICES
Spire collects, analyzes, and enriches information gathered from our custom constellation of satellites, using it to create a priceless repository of insights not available anywhere else.
Spire Aviation – provides historical flight data, ADS-B tracking, and up-to-date data on the weather that impacts aviation operations, all delivered through developer-friendly APIs.
Spire Weather - offers a proprietary weather forecast model powered by our radio occultation data and custom predictive models, producing highly accurate, global high-resolution forecasts with over 50+ discrete variables.
Spire Maritime - is revolutionizing how global AIS data for maritime intelligence is collected, analyzed, and delivered, providing Intelligent maritime tracking and monitoring solutions, unique coverage of high traffic zones, and maritime weather forecasts.
Spire Earth Intelligence - we collect rich and unique data sets about our planet’s surface and its atmospheric layers fuelling key research and development programs, inspiring new services and applications, and driving public environmental programs across the globe.
Spire Space Services - using our space technology, state-of-the-art in-house manufacturing process, seamlessly integrated space and ground infrastructure, and automated operations, we enable other innovators, commercial organizations, and governments to deploy their own applications and sensors into space.
Spire has more than 350 years of space flight heritage, having launched 150+ Low Earth Multi-Use Receivers (LEMUR) across more than 30 launch campaigns, 3 so far in 2022, on 10 different launch providers.
We operate the world’s largest RF sensing fleet and are the largest producer of radio occultation and space weather data.
Our multi-payload satellites are equipped with a variety of sensors incl. Automatic Identification System (AIS), Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B), Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Radio Occultation (RO), and Reflectometry ®.
We operate a global network of 30+ ground stations globally, with 70+ antennas in over 16 countries.
Our data provide a global view with coverage in remote regions like oceans and poles; with an up-to 15 minutes refresh rate.
We are continuously launching improved sensors and upgrading them in-orbit.
We turn ideas into the live feed from space in as little as 6-12 months.
Spire’s customers range from small logistics analytics companies to large enterprises and government agencies (both civil and defence). Our panel of experts and strategic partnerships across verticals are well-positioned to tackle some of the most pressing problems of the 21st century.
MAJOR SPACE PROJECTS
We are rapidly scaling our team in Luxembourg in order to carry out a wide portfolio of scientific and engineering projects, including:
- The development of edge computing capacities, leveraging state-of-the-art machine learning techniques for on-board and near-real-time data processing.
- Leveraging unique dataset collected through Spire Constellation for the provision of value-added products on the Earth's Surface. Notably around soil moisture and sea ice coverage.
- Development of dedicated payload and algorithms for RF spectrum Monitoring and Signal Intelligence applications
- Leveraging external datasets and data fusion techniques to improve the value of the data collected by Spire's satellites.
