Spire Global and Airbus Partner to Deliver Global Aircraft Surveillance Data

MADRID, Spain – Spire Global and Airbus Defence and Space have signed a Memorandum of Understanding. Under the MoU, Spire will contribute data from its network of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) enabled satellites to the Airbus Surveillance Digital Eco-System.

Airbus is looking to create a near real-time database of air traffic by building an ecosystem of suppliers with different kinds of data sets. Spire’s unique capability to offer space-based ADS-B data surveillance will allow Airbus to fulfill its ambition to “make more of the sky” by delivering real-time, global aircraft surveillance data to the broader aviation market.

“Airbus is a forward-thinking organization with a heavy focus on technology and innovation – especially when it comes to the implications that data has on business. For that reason, they are an ideal partner for Spire AirSafe,” said William Fernandez, Spire AirSafe Business Development Executive.

Spire’s global ADS-B service will begin to roll out later this year. The service is driven by the company’s multi-sensor satellite platform which serves multiple data types from a single satellite bus. Spire’s current satellite constellation contains 58 satellites and covers each point on Earth more than one hundred times per day.
