Today at World ATM Congress 2018, Spire announced that its first Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) enabled satellites are due to launch by the end of Q2. Like all LEMUR2 class satellites, these first ADS-B satellites will be multi-sensor, carrying additional weather (GPS-Radio Occultation) and maritime (Automatic Identification System) payloads. These new satellites are the first to enable Spire’s AirSafe aircraft tracking service. Testing for initial customers will follow shortly after launch of the satellites.

Odyn.ai, a cutting-edge developer of logistics analytics, uses Spire as their supplier of global Automatic Identification System (AIS) data. The company’s analytics rely on Spire Sense’s fast revisit time over the open ocean to help make their predictive analytics possible.
Launch is never boring and success is never a guarantee. With 16 launches now under our belt, the majority of those having launched in the last 2 years, Spire already launches satellites into orbit more often than any other company in the world. But 3 launches in under 3 weeks? We thought this deserved a mention.
