Kleos Space S.A. (ASX: KSS, Frankfurt: KS1), a space-powered Radio Frequency Reconnaissance data provider, announces that it will collaborate with Spire Global, one of the world's largest space to cloud analytics companies. Kleos and Spire will collaborate to combine Spire AIS data with KLEOS RF data to create a new shared capability to bring safety at sea.

Kleos and Spire have entered into an agreement to collaborate on creating enhanced tools for Maritime Safety. The effort will support and augment tools for Governments, Maritime Agencies, and all organizations with strategic interest in detecting dark vessels.

This collaboration represents the first time that an AIS provider and RF Satellite provider have entered into an agreement where these datasets will be integrated. The collaboration opens up access to the respective customer bases for the company’s individual and combined products with Kleos being Defence market focussed and Spire commercial markets focussed.

By filtering with Spires accurate picture of legitimate maritime activity, the Kleos RF activity data rapidly delivers a view of dark maritime activity.

“Spire Maritime shares a desire to illuminate parts of the world just as Kleos does,” said John Lusk, General Manager, Spire Maritime. “We continue to partner with the most innovative industry experts to create new access to highly relevant datasets for customers worldwide.”

Kleos’ CEO Andy Bowyer said, “The collaboration between Kleos and Spire will provide unprecedented detection of dark vessels. The Safety at Sea Collaboration will provide an effective tool for Governments, Maritime Agencies and other organizations with an interest in keeping our seas safe.”

Kleos’ independent, data products provide defence, security and commercial users with access to a cost-effective daily geolocation intelligence. The Kleos’ Scouting Mission satellites will provide daily geolocation observation with Kleos’ planned full constellation providing near-real-time updates.

Spire Global's reputation for valuable data is due to their large constellation of fully owned and operated satellites that offer data and analytics for parts of the world where collecting data is notoriously difficult.
