Space-based AIS data company Spire Global has announced two new partnerships to combine its services with those from other data providers, having reached separate agreements with insurance analytics provider Concirrus and RF company Kleos Space.
The partnership with Concirrus will see the firms’ respective data sets integrated to develop a new platform using data as the prime enabler for improved maritime insurance performance.
“Not all data is created equal and we perform rigorous validation and due diligence on sources before deciding to integrate them into our core machine learning models,” said Graham Libaert, Director of Alliances at Concirrus.
“We’re excited to be working with the Spire Maritime team to provide our customers with the best, most competitive information possible for pricing, underwriting, and risk management.”
Spire’s partnership with Kleos Space, a space-powered Radio Frequency reconnaissance data provider, will also see the companies’ cooperate on creating new tools for maritime safety that incorporate both firms’ products.
The effort aims to complement and augment existing tools for governments, maritime agencies, and all organisations with strategic interest in detecting ‘dark’ vessels outside of current tracking coverage.
The new offering, expected to be launched in Q4 of this year, will see Spire’s proprietary AIS data combined with RF data from Kleos to cover situations where AIS is undetected.
“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.”
