In addition through its partnership with VesselTracker GmbH, exactEarth data is now increasingly being used across the commercial shipping world by Port Authorities, Ship Owners, Brokers and Fleet Managers.
Peter Mabson, President of exactEarth, commented: "We are obviously delighted to see such growth over the last 12 months and this confirms our belief that the benefit of our exactAIS service is now being realized across an ever- wider maritime market. With the continued expansion of both our in-orbit and ground station capabilities next year, building on our recent successful launch of the first of our next generation of AIS satellites, our service will continue to improve and the value to our customers increase. Our service now provides the highest global ship detection rates of any satellite-based AIS system with our patented processing technology also delivering ground-breaking results for positive identifications within a single satellite pass and in areas of dense maritime traffic. Our strengthening partnerships, highlighted by our relationship with VesselTracker, and our plans for simple web services delivery will allow this service to be delivered to a wider audience which we see as key to sustaining this impressive growth moving ahead."
