SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation (Head Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director, President & Chief Executive Officer: Shinji Takada; SJC) announces that SJC signed ground station hosting services with Spire Global, Inc (Head Office: San Francisco, CA, USA; Spire).

Spire is a space-to-cloud data analytics company that offers data & analytics that deliver insights into the parts of the world where collecting data is notoriously difficult. Spire's satellites excel in covering areas of ships, planes, and weather in remote regions, and its products are unmatched in empowering users to take advantage of this unique data.

SJC will drive its satellite business in not only geo stationary orbit market but also low earth orbit market. One of SJC’s low earth orbit satellite businesses is ground station service and SJC’s ground station services for low earth orbit satellites will start with two approaches: one is to host the customer's antenna in the facilities of SJC and/or SJC’s partners, and the other is to provide the customer with the services by the antenna owned by SJC. Under this agreement, SJC would be happy to host Spire’s antenna and be honored to become Spire’s first partner in Japan.

With the ever-growing demand to move large quantities of data quickly and securely around the world, SJC will aggressively participate in low earth orbit satellite market.
