The contract will see the Ontario-based firm purchase one satellite outright, while obtaining data under licence from the other two.  exactEarth says the data from the satellites will significantly increase the capabilities of its global vessel monitoring service.

“We are pleased to announce the expansion of our exactView network with these additional in-orbit AIS satellites, which are operated through a global network of 13 Earth stations,” says Philip Miller, VP of operations and engineering at exactEarth.

“In addition our ground station network is rapidly expanding towards 23 strategically selected locations around the world to provide the lowest latency service and highest detection performance available using exactEarth's patented AIS detection technology.”

“With the inclusion of AIS data from three more satellites and our ground network expansion our customers will continue to benefit from the industry leading service that they have come to expect from exactEarth.”
