Satellite-AIS data services provider exactEarth and ship tracking and maritime intelligence company MarineTraffic have entered into a three-year channel partner agreement that will see MarineTraffic deploy exactEarth’s exactView RT data into its online maritime services products.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The integration of exactView RT into MarineTraffic’s products will help deliver business-critical and actionable vessel information by providing a comprehensive and real-time overview of vessel position.

exactView RT consists of 58 operational payloads and seven orbital spares that were designed and built by Harris Corporation and are hosted onboard the Iridium NEXT constellation of satellites. exactView RT’s advanced maritime payloads cover the entire maritime VHF radio band and leverage cross-linked architecture of the Iridium NEXT satellite constellation to deliver AIS and other vessel-based VHF data services from more than 500,000 vessels, anywhere on the globe.

MarineTraffic operates 2,000 AIS stations in more than 165 countries around-the-world, delivering comprehensive AIS coastal tracking facilities.

“MarineTraffic is a leading provider of vessel movement information services and we look forward to contributing to their ongoing efforts to enhance their customer experience,” said Peter Mabson, president & CEO of exactEarth. “This Agreement opens-up another channel for our satellite AIS data services and is a further positive indication of the response we have received from customers, prospects and partners regarding the real-time functionality of exactView RT. With its superior vessel detection, rapid update rate and reliability, exactView RT is becoming a “must-have” data source on major data platforms throughout the maritime industry.”

Argyris Stasinakis, partner business development, MarineTraffic, said: “The addition of exactEarth’s high resolution, real-time AIS data means that MarineTraffic is now the go-to source for any professional seeking the most comprehensive view of shipping movements. Users of our platform exploiting our ocean coverage services will see enhanced functionality thanks to the higher frequency, coverage and less than one-minute latency delivered by the exactView RT satellite constellation. This means that our popular predictive services will be more accurate than ever before, allowing our customers to monitor and plan more precisely.”{/mprestriction}
