Portfolio company Spire Global, the leading provider of space-based data, analytics and space services has announced a multi-launch agreement (MLA) with Exolaunch to launch future Spire satellites using upgraded deployer technology.
Through this MLA, Spire will gain fast and regular access to space for its own satellite constellation as well as for all of its customers to enhance Spire’s “space-as-a-service" offerings.
Exolaunch will also be providing Spire with deployment and integration services on small launchers.
Robert Sproles, Ph.D., Senior Director, Constellation Planning and Operations at Spire, said: “We’ve worked closely with Exolaunch since 2015 and are pleased to continue this long-term partnership in the new MLA format. The custom deployer and flexibility of the MLA exemplify the industry-leading services we expect from our partners. The additional mass and volume availability of the deployer allows us to better serve our internal and space services needs through more efficient use of launch slots. EXOpod Nova allows us to accommodate additional payloads and external deployables for this common form-factor. This novel technical solution significantly optimizes our launch budgets.”
