Spire Global has announced a partnership with Myriota. Myriota will use Spire’s existing satellite platform and continue to scale the Myriota Network as Spire deploys new satellites. Spire and Myriota plan to quickly ramp up Myriota’s coverage to a global, low latency constellation, expanding Myriota’s existing coverage in North America, Australia and New Zealand to other markets including Europe.
Spire’s constellation of low-earth orbit nanosatellites is equipped with a range of software-defined radios (SDR) that let partners test, deploy, operate, and scale custom applications.
The Myriota Network enables customers in industries like logistics, utilities, and agriculture to securely monitor and collect data globally using its long-lasting and low-cost IoT sensors.
“We’re proud our satellites and technology are ready to seamlessly help Myriota make smart devices more accessible to everyone,” said Theresa Condor, Executive Vice President, General Manager of Space Services and Earth Intelligence at Spire. “Australia is a hotbed of innovative companies, and it’s gratifying to help a leading satellite connectivity provider go to market quickly and scale up efficiently.”
“With high demand for the Myriota Network from our partners, who are rolling out products at an ever-accelerating rate, this agreement is a game changer for our business,” said Dr. David Haley, CTO and Co-founder, Myriota. “By leveraging Spire’s constellation, Myriota will rapidly improve its services, and enter new markets such as Europe. Spire is a perfect partner for extending our global reach.”
