Kleos and Spire in maritime safety collaboration

Kleos Space and Spire Global are to collaborate on a maritime safety solution, combining their respective radio frequency data and analytics capabilities, in what is believed to be a first-of-a-kind integration.

Kleos’ independent data products provide defence, security and commercial users with access to daily geolocation intelligence. The Kleos’ Scouting Mission satellites provide daily geolocation observation with near-real-time updates. Spire Global's offers data and analytics for parts of the world where collecting data is notoriously difficult.

The Safety at Sea Collaboration is designed to create supporting tools for organisations with a strategic interest in detecting dark vessels. By filtering with Spires accurate picture of legitimate maritime activity, the Kleos RF activity data can deliver a view of dark maritime activity.

“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.”

Kleos’ CEO Andy Bowyer added: “The collaboration between Kleos and Spire will provide unprecedented detection of dark vessels. The Safety at Sea Collaboration will provide an effective tool for governments, maritime agencies and other organisations with an interest in keeping our seas safe.”
