People are affected by the weather each day. Extreme weather can disrupt the operating and financial performance of 70% of businesses worldwide and is estimated to cost more than $600 billion per year in the U.S. alone.
With increased global business and the threat of climate change, the stakes have never been higher. But what if you could have a forecast designed to help reduce your operational risks, and change weather variability into a competitive advantage for your business?
MEET SPIRE WEATHER
A CONSTELLATION AT YOUR SERVICE
Spire was founded in 2012 and we already have one of the largest private satellite constellations in the world. Our LEMUR satellites orbit the planet every 90 minutes. Collectively, they pass over every point on earth hundreds of times per day. At remote or very inaccessible locations, Spire collects data where no one else can.
A TRULY GLOBAL REACH
Unlike other global weather services that rely on scarce low-quality data for most of the globe, Spire Weather uses our constellation of satellites to create a unique global observation dataset and bring the best level of accuracy, previously only available in local and well-developed regions, to the entire planet.
DESIGNED FOR BUSINESS
The forecasts are delivered by an intelligent and easy-to-use API that can be quickly integrated to your own products and services. In addition, our team of specialists is available to help you have a great experience and extract the most value out of the product.
Spire Weather is not only repackaging weather predictions that are publicly available. Our service is also built on top of the world's most advanced national center forecasts (like ECMWF and NOAA), but it adds our global observation dataset and our own proprietary weather prediction models. From highly accurate next few hours predictions to the next days, apply unique insights to help tackle your business or your customer's challenges.

AND THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING
Unlike our competitors, we build and own our satellites. This means that hardware and software are constantly evolving, and more satellites are launched every few weeks.
Smarter satellites, more coverage, unique atmospheric information, and control over the whole chain: the result is an always improving weather forecast.
