WASHINGTON – A constellation of 40 geolocation satellites operated and maintained by Spire Global collects data that is used by the U.S. Space Force in order to detect GPS jamming. This issue has gained worldwide attention as a result of Russia’s electronic warfare tactics prior to its invasion of Ukraine.

In an earnings call on March 9, Spire CEO Peter Platzer said, \”All of our other space companies… Everyone is playing a crucial role for humanity in the battle for freedom and democratic.\”

Spire provides GPS telemetry to detect jamming in a project run the U.S. Space Systems Command. The goal is to find a way to automate data analysis and produce more timely information for military operations.
