We’re very excited at exactEarth as the countdown to the launch of our 2nd generation satellite constellation, exactViewRT powered by Harris, draws ever closer. Our maritime-focused payloads have now been delivered for installation on the first batch of the Iridium Next satellites, and we eagerly await confirmation of the first launch date later this summer.
In case you missed our big announcement, we wanted to fill you in.
exactEarth and Harris Corporation have partnered up to bring to you real-time Satellite AIS. That's right, real-time global ship tracking from space will soon be a reality. Through the new partnership, we're able to hitch a ride on 58 hosted payloads of the Iridium NEXT constellation.
These satellites are networked together with crosslinks and are in constant communication with multiple ground stations. This means you receive AIS data in real time!
We're all about taking giant strides forward to expand our services and the system that powers them. That's why we're also really excited about the 2 planned satellite launches in the fall of 2015, including an equatorial satellite that will significantly lower the current revisit times.
Satellite AIS is changing forever - Take a look at our latest infographic to learn more about our present system with a glimpse into the future as well with exactView RT!!
We recently added some more new features to ShipView Version 1.2 and thought it was high time to highlight the best of the best.
ShipView is your portal into the world's shipping, allowing you perform long range tracking and monitoring of vessel activity across our oceans. It's easy to use, completely web-based and packed with useful tools.
Let's take a look at the top 8 features (in no particular order):
The Government of Canada is getting ready to participate in the Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2012 combined and joint exercise taking place near the Hawaiian Islands from June 29 to August 3.
