Spire Global Observing System
Distributed Sensor Platform
Spire satellites form a cooperating system of sensors, delivering value by generating data globally and in ways not possible with conventional satellite systems.
Spire satellites are continuously launched and replaced – bringing new technology to space fastest in the industry, and enabling sustainable space operations.
By leveraging software-defined radio, Spire satellites produce new and more data as they age thanks to ongoing in-space improvements.
Satellites in Space:
Sustainable Space Operations
Spire satellites operate in low-Earth orbit, where the atmosphere is dense enough to guarantee satellites re-entry within a few years of launch. Satellites completely disintegrate in the upper atmosphere with zero trace making it to the surface.
By relying purely on passive to clear our orbits, and ensuring the satellites entirely disintegrate Spire’s constellation is the cleanest way of operating in space.
