Spire and Kleos partner to drive safety at sea

Space to cloud analytics firm Spire Global and space-powered Radio Frequency Reconnaissance data provider Kleos Space have announced a collaboration to combine Spire AIS data with KLEOS RF data to create a new shared capability to improve safety at sea.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Under the agreement, the companies will cooperate on creating tools for maritime safety. The effort will support and augment tools for governments, maritime agencies, and all organisations with strategic interest in detecting dark vessels.

Spire data will be included include with Kleos’ RF Reconnaissance data products which are available on the site in three levels – Guardian RF, Guardian LOCATE and Guardian UDT – and can be pre-ordered by registered users on a monthly or annual basis.  Spire will deliver proprietary AIS data to the RF data Kleos providers in these situations where AIS is undetected.

This partnership represents the first time that AIS provider and RF Satellite provider have signed an agreement where these datasets can be easily integrated. It is also the first time two New Space organisations based in Luxembourg have partnered up to strengthen safety at sea.

The companies will introduce the new product offering in Q4 of this year.

“Spire Maritime shares a desire to illuminate parts of the world just as Kleos does,” said John Lusk, GM, Spire Maritime. “We continue to partner with the most innovative industry experts to create new access to highly relevant datasets for customers worldwide.”{/mprestriction}
