Spire Launches AirSafe API

By | October 16, 2019

Spire Global revealed the company’s first product from Spire Aviation, with the launch of their new AirSafe API. Spire Aviation’s AirSafe product uses Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) technology combined with ground-based collection to provide detail on global aircraft position reports for the world’s aircraft fleet operations.

The AirSafe product aims to help solve the industry’s need for flight tracking data covering both land and oceans at a competitive cost. Spire AirSafe also offers Spire’s weather forecasting products, enabling customers to benefit from fused aircraft location positional data and global winds aloft and air turbulence forecast.

Spire Aviation is building towards full surveillance of all remote areas of the globe and continues to grow its satellite constellation. Spire’s roadmap includes launch campaigns to ultimately provide equatorial ICAO 4D/15 compliant method of aircraft tracking (+/- 15 degrees latitude) and global coverage enabled by inter-satellite links in the future.
