exactEarth's new satellite joins operational service offering
Dec 13, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
exactEarth Ltd., a provider of satellite AIS data services, has added its new satellite exactView-1, or EV-1, into its commercial service.
EV-1 is a AIS satellite, which reportedly performs with detection rates of up to 40% better than previous satellite sensors.
EV-1 was launched into an 810km polar orbit in late July 2012 and subsequently went through rigorous commissioning activities to bring the satellite into full operation. exactEarth will expand its constellation in the near future with advanced AIS Receivers on board the Canadian M3M satellite and the Spanish PAZ radar satellite both launching in 2013.
"We are very excited to announce that EV-1 has joined our operational service offering," said Peter Mabson, President of exactEarth. "We are thrilled that the advanced sensors coupled with our patented de-collision processing algorithms are delivering results beyond our expectations making EV-1 a huge leap forward in space AIS detection.
"This single enhancement to our service offering doubles the AIS messages collected from space and delivers an even higher level of performance to our customers around the world providing the most complete maritime picture available today."
