Fast, scalable, and reliable access to space

Spire’s Orbital Service is designed to accommodate new customer payloads quickly and efficiently allowing for an incredibly fast rollout of new capabilities. Our flexible and consistent launch schedule, as well as our ability to design, assemble, test, and operate LEMUR satellites in-house, allows new sensors to go from design to launch in just 6 months


Why Spire?

We serve our customers by offering to host 1U to 3U payloads on our industry-leading LEMUR and LEMUR ‘Plus’ carriers. Our global network of 30+ ground stations (that we operate), ensure Spire’s incredibly low latency and bent-pipe delivery of payload data to our customers.

  • Low Cost

    Our cutting edge nanosatellite technology and rapid manufacturing accelerate the time to orbit. Since we own our satellites, the cost is significantly lower than satellite development.

  • Fast

    Our ability to assemble one satellite every 10 days, combined with a consistent launch schedule, ensures design to launch in just 6 months.

  • Secure

    Full vertical integration ensures a controlled and efficient payload integration process. Our customized data sets are completely secure. Spire’s end-to-end data encryption guarantees data pipeline security.
