Spire Adds New Weather Insights for the Maritime Industry
Spire Global is rolling out new weather solutions for the maritime industry that the company says can analyze how upcoming weather conditions affect business operations. Spire announced the new offerings — Weather Insights and Weather by Route — on Wednesday.
The company said these offerings combine weather data collected from its constellation of more than 100 satellites with maritime expertise through artificial intelligence and machine learning. Weather Insights allows a customer to calculate projected risk due to weather for a particular vessel and load size on a route. Weather by route offers customized weather forecasts for a planned route.
“As a mission-driven company, we’re committed to providing solutions for today’s global challenges, such as global supply chain disruptions and climate change,” said Dr. Kevin Petty, vice president of Weather and Earth Intelligence at Spire. “Our weather solutions give maritime organizations the resources they need to optimize fuel consumption, reduce their carbon footprint, better predict port ETA, and keep crew safe from hazardous weather conditions.”
