Global AIS archive launched

  • Friday, 20 January 2012 | News

Satellite AIS provider exactEarth has announced the release of a two-year archive of global maritime vessel locations.

The exactAIS Archive will be a commercially available product and will contain over 250 million maritime vessel locations dating back to July 2010.

The company is calling this a "totally unique historical record of global shipping covering every part of the world’s oceans."

"Our archive represents the most complete record of satellite AIS vessel movements on a global scale," said Peter Mabson, president of exactEarth. "It is a true testament to our long-standing, and world-leading, operational capability in the satellite-AIS area."

"Furthermore, this unique archive is now growing at an unprecedented rate which reinforces our belief that it will be considered the definitive record of maritime vessel movements on a global scale."

"With continual improvements being made in our unique ground-based processing capabilities, as well as recent expansions in our superior satellite constellation, we have seen a 50 per cent increase in our operational capability in just the last 6 months. This has resulted in exactEarth now receiving and processing a staggering 1 million AIS messages a day from space for our ever expanding user community."

The exactAIS Archive will allow data to be accessed using a selection of search criteria, including date and time range; geographical area; AIS message type; ship MMSI list; ship type; and country flag.
