exactEarth has been selected by Airbus Defence and Space as AIS partner to support its Ocean Finder maritime service.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Under the terms of the two-year agreement, exactEarth will provide Airbus with live and archived data from exactView RT, the company’s second-generation real-time satellite-AIS data service. Data from exactEarth’s high performance AIS payload hosted on the PAZ radar satellite will also be provided to Airbus.

The data provided by exactEarth will help Airbus improve its Ocean Finder maritime service that delivers fast satellite-based detection and identification reports for assets at sea. Ocean Finder supports a wide range of applications, such as monitoring fleets of ships, locating hijacked boats, illegal activities detection, maritime mission preparation as well as ensuring safety in hostile areas and supporting search and rescue operations.

“We are very pleased to be chosen by Airbus, one of the world’s most recognised aerospace corporations, as AIS partner for their new and innovative maritime applications platform,” said Peter Mabson, CEO of exactEarth. “Our exactView RT system offers both world-leading performance and long-term reliability and we look forward to supporting Airbus to utilise this capability as they bring advanced maritime applications to the global market.”

“This AIS data will definitively boost our Ocean Finder service. Fused with our satellite imagery and additional intelligence information, it will improve the production of analytics, alerts and reports,” said François Lombard, director of intelligence business at Airbus Defence and Space.{/mprestriction}
