Spire Global to Provide Radio Occultation Weather, Climate Data to NOAA

Spire Global announced that it has secured an eight-month, $9.4 million task order from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for radio occultation data delivery.

Spire will provide real-time RO data to support NOAA’s operational weather forecasts, space weather models, climate research and other missions. Spire’s radio occultation data comprises atmospheric measurements, including worldwide pressures, humidity and temperatures.

The task order was awarded under an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for the Commercial Weather Data Program’s Radio Occultation Data Buy II, Spire said.

The company has secured data service contracts with NOAA and other agencies over recent months.

In September, Spire Global Subsidiary received a one-year, three-phase NOAA contract for Commercial Weather Data Pilot studies. The company was tasked with helping NOAA assess the quality and impact of commercially available global navigation satellite systems in measuring ocean surface winds.

In August, NASA awarded Spire Global a one-year, $6.5 million contract extension for Earth observation data, metadata and ancillary information. The data Spire Global provides under the contract extension is obtained through Spire’s low-Earth orbit satellites.
