Spire Global has established an office in Washington, D.C., to serve as a hub for the cloud analytics company to develop enterprise platforms designed to support government space data requirements.

The D.C. facility represents Spire's third office in the country and its sixth worldwide, the company said Tuesday.

Keith Johnson, vice president and general manager of Spire's federal business, said the company has landed contracts with the U.S. Air Force, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NASA and the European Space Agency as well as multiple entities across the aviation, maritime and weather sectors.

Johnson added the firm's radio occultation-based collection platform offers a new opportunity for the U.S. government to access commercial data.

Spire has a private constellation of radio frequency-focused satellites and ground infrastructure
