Strengthened situational awareness

Our global data solutions help civil government and defence agencies to track assets; survey land borders, sea and air space; track illegal activities and monitor environmental factors even in denied areas, arctic regions or hard-to-reach locations.

Tailored to mission-specific requirements

Spire’s global data sets can be customised to meet your mission needs. Our space services and custom nanosatellite solutions allow for complete customer control from design to in-orbit operations and data downlink.

Assuring security & optimal control

Complete vertical integration ensures a controlled and efficient payload integration process for our payloads and customer payloads. All communications between cloud-based command machines and satellites are secured with an end-to-end encryption, and our ground stations never decrypt customer data.

Reliable space platform

Our multi-payload Low Earth Multi-Use Receiver (LEMUR) nanosatellite platform with over 300 years of collective spaceflight heritage and 100+ LEMUR satellites launched is matched with a global network of ground stations to offer proven in-space and ground infrastructure for the most demanding missions.

Fast start with constellation level scalability

Spire manufactures new satellites every 10 days and launches every six weeks, ensuring development to operational readiness in as little as ~6 months. As a result we are continuously launching improved sensors and upgrading them in orbit, on our own payloads or those of our customers.
