The expertise and technology powering Spire’s maritime ecosystem
Over 10 years of research & infrastructure development
At Spire Global, we recognize the value of data in the fight to protect the people, planet and profits. This is why we’ve spent over a decade researching, understanding and analyzing weather and building our very own weather models, so we can predict it more accurately.
To support that mission, we’ve invested our resources to create the world’s largest private nanosatellite fleet to date to scan all points across the globe, especially under-observed regions, such as the oceans.
With our scientific knowledge, robust space infrastructure, and decade-long experience, you can now access precise and accurate 15 day global maritime weather forecasts.
Advancing the science of weather forecasting
Spire Global’s constellation of nanosatellites is designed, built, and operated in-house at our advanced manufacturing facility in Glasgow. Our team comprises leading experts, including PhD-level scientists, meteorologists, engineers, analysts, and more.
Our satellites use cutting-edge radio occultation (RO) techniques to collect over 20,000 atmospheric readings every day. Spire uses its own radio occultation (RO) data to provide accurate global weather predictions for any location on the planet. As the largest producer of RO data, we integrate it with other data sets in our proprietary global weather models to generate highly precise weather forecasts for any point on the globe.
Enhancing maritime operational efficiencies with advanced weather solutions
Get actionable intelligence and strategic insights for your planned route with Spire’s Voyage Optimization. Receive recommended vessel route options based on vessel-specific models and characteristics and your desired outcome (best TCE, minimum fuel, best time or Just-in-time arrival)
Developed in partnership with Theyr, a leading maritime routing company, this revolutionary algorithm optimizes voyages by considering multiple objectives, such as reducing fuel consumption, minimizing emissions, and enhancing safety, all combined with Spire’s weather forecasts.
This empowers shipping companies to make informed decisions that benefit their operations, promote sustainability, and maximize profitability.
Improve your fleet’s average vessel performance with instant, swift access to advanced maritime weather information via reliable APIs. Our user-friendly platform ensures effortless access to customized data for AI/ML applications, providing continuous and granular datasets for optimized training. Obtain accurate historical data via our route-based API to tune your vessel performance models.
To unlock unparalleled insights about your vessel’s behavior, acquire Spire’s additional datasets such as its global AIS positional data and global sea ice extent.
Enhance your maritime situational awareness with a complete understanding of your global fleet positional data and visualize weather conditions within the same online dashboard. Use our ShipView tool to visualize the weather conditions on ship traffic around the world in real-time.
Use the platform to monitor your current fleet performance, validate conditions impacting your vessel(s), or monitor rapidly evolving weather forecasts for the latest information to keep your crew, cargo and vessels out of harm’s way. Identify and prepare for weather-related disasters, minimize port congestion and manage terminal safety with access to one single platform.
