Lemurs

How do you simultaneously collect multiple types of data everywhere on the planet? Earth, meet Spire’s LEMURs.

Animated earth looping

Each LEMUR satellite,
about the size of a bottle of wine,orbits the planet every 90 minutes. Collectively, they pass over every point on Earth hundreds of times per day.

Looking for a custom dataset?

New LEMUR satellites launch almost every month. Each satellite lasts just a few years before it harmlessly de-orbits and is replaced by a new and improved LEMUR satellite. Spire upgrades satellites the same way most people upgrade their smartphones: 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.
