“Maritime risk takes many forms, including piracy, weather, and traffic density, and Spire’s increasingly dense network of satellites and easily integrated software tools create key geospatial analytics in the ESRI partner ecosystem. These tools will become even more critical in the future as machine-assisted navigation and autonomous shipping come to the forefront of industry innovation.”

Improving the world,
one satellite at a time.

We build and own our satellites. Our hardware and software are constantly evolving and we launch more satellites each year.

At Spire, we believe smarter satellites and more ground stations mean better coverage and higher quality data for our customers. Our mission is to solve challenges across multiple industries with our easy to use APIs. Spire monitors signals that can only be detected from space and we’re constantly broadening our reach.


  • Software-defined

    We use programmable sensors to collect data and we re-program these sensors while in obit to make sure our customers are receiving cutting edge information. Applying Moore’s Law to space, we make sure Spire’s sensors are as up to date as the latest cellphone.

  • Fast and iterative

    Spire upgrades the satellite hardware with each iteration and performs continuous software updates with a major hardware upgrade every 2-3 years. That means Spire can deploy custom sensors to orbit faster than anyone else in the industry.

  • Global

    Spire collects data where no one else can. We capture radio frequencies in remote and inaccessible locations where ground-based receivers can’t reach. With operations all over the world, Spire maintains 24/7 coverage of the Earth.

Spire data works with the platforms you already use

Spire’s APIs allow developers to easily search and customize the data they need for research and operations. For maritime data, an agency can look up a specific vessel or region for unusual activity. Spire even offers fully processed GPS-RO weather data through an easy to use API where an agricultural company can use our forecasts to better plan their operations. Aircraft operators also get the same level of filtering.
