EUMETSAT Awards Spire Global Contract for Satellite Weather Data
13 December 2023
Spire Global has been awarded a multi-million euro contract by EUMETSAT, Europe’s meteorological satellite agency, to provide radio occultation (RO) data.
The data will be used in near-real time for weather forecasting models and will be distributed globally in line with the World Meteorological Organization’s principle of free and open data exchange.
The award follows a successful pilot program that demonstrated the benefits of Spire’s Ro data for weather forecasting accuracy and value.
