New AIS service delivers in real time

ADVERTISEMENT

Canada-based ExactEarth Ltd., a provider of Satellite AIS data services, has launched exactView RT, a global, persistent real-time satellite automatic identification system service. ExactView RT consists of a system of more than 60 maritime satellite payloads –designed, built and operated by Harris Corp. — that are hosted onboard the Iridium NEXT constellation of satellites. These advanced maritime payloads cover the entire maritime VHF radio band and leverage the cross-linked architecture of the global Iridium NEXT satellite constellation to deliver AIS and other vessel-based VHF data services from any vessel, anywhere on the globe, relaying that data in real-time. The first four of these payloads are being put into service with full system deployment expected in 2018.

Initially, the system is tracking more than 250,000 AIS-equipped vessels around the world including Class B AIS device transmissions using exactTrax technology. This tracked population is expected to grow to more than one million vessels worldwide in the next decade.
