Spire Global is a 160-person space data company founded in 2012. In less than seven years, Spire has built one of the world's largest satellite constellations, and we're just getting started.
We are looking for a Real-Time GNSS Expert to join our Glasgow office. The Real-Time GNSS Expert will be an integral part of a small but agile team tasked with using large quantities of satellite data assimilated into an ionosphere model to create real-time corrections to improve the performance of GNSS location-based services and other applications.
Positioning errors from ionospheric effects on GNSS signals remain one of the last hurdles in improving real-time GNSS precise point positioning (PPP) accuracies. Furthermore, ionospheric errors can increase the time to first fix in real-time kinematic (RTK) systems and ionospheric scintillation can reduce the accuracy of all GNSS systems. Spire satellites have the unique capability to measure TEC and scintillation indices globally and to thereby provide near real-time estimates of ionospheric delay and disturbance effects on GNSS services. The Real-Time GNSS Expert will help transform the outputs of our ionospheric data assimilation model into useful near real-time corrections for GNSS services, leading to greater confidence in applications that require high accuracy and resiliency, such as autonomous vehicle navigation.
