Satellite and Terrestrial AIS Data Services Products
Easily track and visualize ships with Spire’s custom, constantly-updating vessels database. Access ship details along with positions and voyages. Quickly filter by area of interest, ship type, flag country, MMSI, IMO, arrival times, and more.
Work with decoded and cleansed AIS messages plus retrieve data from the 7-day archive. Create a custom stream based on area of interest, message type, collection type, flag country, and MMSI.
With typical AIS, you only know where a ship has been - not where it is or where it will be. Predict gives you, with confidence, an accurate location for where a ship is right now.
SATELLITE + TERRESTRIAL System Metrics
Spire's launch strategy has new satellites entering orbit nearly every month. That pays large dividends in revisit time - the ability to see more ships, more often. Continuous on-orbit satellite software upgrades lead to immediate improvements for customers, like boosts in unique MMSIs and messages collected. No other AIS provider makes system-wide improvements as fast as Spire.
“Having Spire’s timely global AIS coverage allows us to make much more accurate predictions, leading to better recommendations and increased customer cost savings. Being able to see every vessel in the water in semi-realtime means a super fresh picture of what’s going on in the maritime world. In our world, having fresh maritime data has huge impacts on making good supply chain decisions.”
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.
The UK Space Agency has awarded more than £4 million to Spire Global, a satellite powered data company, to demonstrate cutting-edge space technology including ‘parallel super-computing’, UK Government ministers Lord Henley and Lord Duncan announced today.
Today, Spire Global Inc. announces Global Fishing Watch has successfully integrated Spire Sense data into its global transparency platform.
