Spire is a next-generation data and predictive analytics company that collects data from space to solve problems on Earth. Spire identifies, tracks and predicts the movement of the world’s resources and weather systems. Using its constantly improving global constellation of radio frequency (RF) listening satellites and predictive analytics capabilities, Spire helps businesses and governments decide, with increasing certainty, what to do next in a rapidly changing world.
The team in Luxembourg is focused on Spire Weather, offering industry-leading model technologies and predictive product suites. These robust forecasting tools have the power to help companies across industries.
The Luxembourg office is also home to Spire’s Maritime business unit, which delivers AIS data APIs with built-in maritime intelligence to industry stakeholders.
PRODUCTS & SERVICES
Spire focuses on developing products that leverage big data and predictive analytics to provide next-generation intelligence, designed for a world in which accurate weather forecasting is more vital than it has ever been before.
Spire Sense Cloud
A one-stop-shop for maritime data analytics, best-in-class maritime domain awareness and state-of-the-art vessel tracking.
Spire Stratos Cloud
Uses signals from global navigation satellites to gather weather data about our atmosphere, ground, oceans, and magnetic field. Spire’s Global Earth Model is one of the world’s most accurate and frequently updated weather forecasts, it can support business and humanitarian efforts the world over.
Spire AirSafe Cloud
Optimises management of the skies for safety, profitability and environmental conservation by identifying, tracking and predicting the global movement of aircraft.
Spire’s Space as a Service
Offers organisations and governments the unique opportunity to rapidly deploy custom payloads and RF listening sensors, with a global footprint, in mere months.
Spire has almost 100 nanosatellites in orbit. It has the world’s largest constellation of RF listening satellites, collecting thousands of radio occultation measurements for high-precision weather data and Earth Information measurements that no other company is capturing. With ship tracking (AIS), aircraft tracking (ADS-B), advanced weather model and custom RF listening products, Spire enables decision-makers to continuously optimise strategic and tactical decisions for the future.
Spire’s satellite network is equally matched by the world’s largest LEO ground station network. By harnessing the exponential impact of technology, Spire can reliably and consistently grow the might of its global data collection and analytics capability faster than anyone else. This enables it to rapidly deploy custom products that have never been in space before, at low cost, just months after they are conceived.
Customers range from small logistics analytics companies to large enterprises and governments. 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:
- Provision of a Data Lake containing all data generated by Spire to public research institutions in Luxembourg and local start-ups.
- Real-time, all-weather monitoring of flooded areas, current CYGNSS satellite constellation can compensate for imaging satellites’ shortcomings under heavy cloud cover. R
- Real-time monitoring of the ionospheric disturbances caused by tsunami waves in order to determine the location of the tsunami wave after an earthquake and thereby improve warning systems.
- Determination of the feasibility of soil moisture data from nanosatellites. Using surface reflections, our satellites can determine the local moisture of the soil, improving irrigation needs in the most rain-deprived areas of the world.
