During the past few months, DAPCOM has worked with Spire to adapt its FAPEC data compression technology to their Radio Occultation (RO) satellite data. Our software engineers and data compression experts have crafted a data compression software tool to be deployed in Spire’s payloads on-orbit, achieving a remarkably high compression ratio on RO data. DAPCOM solution will contribute to obtaining a richer data product from the satellites.
This is a strategic project for DAPCOM Data Services that consolidates the company activity in the nanosatellite industry, demonstrating the maturity and applicability of our high-performance data compression technology and its added value to space communications systems, as well as the software engineering excellence of the technical team to design and implement tailored interfaces.
Spire Global, Inc. is an American private company specializing in data gathered from a network of small satellites. It has successfully deployed several Earth observation CubeSats into Low Earth Orbit. The company has offices in San Francisco, Glasgow, Singapore, and Boulder.
