Spire Global will provide Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) data for BAE Systems’ Geospatial eXploitation Products (GXP) software. BAE Systems will include Spire’s data in its GXP software solutions, which offers geospatial intelligence for the discovery, exploitation, and dissemination of mission-critical geospatial data. BAE Systems and Spire will integrate their industry technologies to offer an integrated solution which aims to deliver a deeper, more accurate geospatial intelligence capability via GXP’s software tools.

According to the release, Spire operates one of the largest constellations of private nanosatellites and ground station networks in the world. The company has launched several new strategic partnerships this year, including deals with NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA). and global players in the weather, maritime, and aviation sectors.

“Spire’s radio occultation data collection represents a new commercial weather data opportunity for weather forecasting and predicting models. We’re providing every relevant federal weather organization with a new data set of more substantial information at revisit rates never before seen. Our goal is to better introduce these federal audiences to the proven expertise that has made Spire an industry standard,” said Keith E. Johnson, VP and General Manager, Spire Global, Federal and Government Solutions.
