We empower application service providers and data teams to develop innovative solutions and drive business improvements, using global air traffic data powered by our advanced nanosatellite constellation and other terrestrial receivers.


Global ADS-B Data and Analytics

Spire Aviation offers a simple-to-use API (application programming interface) to access our satellite and ground based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) data. Spire’s APIs are developer-friendly, so you can plug and play effortlessly adding new data and key insights into your systems. In addition to the complete documentation, we offer personalized support that helps you start using data and building apps quickly.


Current terrestrial and ADS-B receivers cover only a small part of the world. Spire tracks more than 50,000 aircraft daily and provides over 150 million position reports a day, with coverage over poles, oceans, and radar-blind land masses.

Better than Traditional Radar Systems

We provide situational awareness without the low altitude – line of sight – constraints and sector boundaries of traditional radar systems.


Weather is the primary disruptor of airline operations. Benefit from fused ADS-B position data with Aviation Weather variables such as Winds aloft and Clear Air Turbulence.

Wondering if Spire’s aviation solutions are right for you?

At Spire, we build and own our satellites and we’re constantly upgrading our hardware and software. We do this because smarter satellites and more ground stations mean better coverage and higher quality data for our customers.

We offer precise position data over land and in remote areas that are out of reach of existing ADS-B data collection and we can customize this data to suit your needs, solve your challenges, and save you time and money.


They trust our data
  • European space agency

“We wanted to find a partner that understood the importance of not only the data but the mechanism of how that data is consumed.

The integration of Spire Aviation Weather and ADS-B tracking, enables us to automate time consuming processes for flight operations staff and flight crews, whether that is flight following, risk assessments or flight feasibility analysis. There are many areas we have now automated with this capability and with the vision of Spire’s product roadmap we are looking forward to achieving much more over the coming years.”
