exactView RT for Search and Rescue Operations

Posted by Philip Miller on Aug 16, 2016 1:08:00 PM

It was about 2:30 in the afternoon, October 1, 2015. Several colleagues and I were at a series of meetings with our partners at Harris Corporation in Melbourne Florida. We had been asked to provide a demonstration of what our Generation 1 satellite constellation is able to do using our web based product, ShipView. This would help Harris employees understand the value of what we will achieve together with exactViewRT powered by Harris.  Peter Dorcas, Sr. Director of Business Development for exactEarth, was making the presentation to a group of about 30 Harris employees. He had ShipView projected on the big screen and was going through a fairly typical demonstration of both the exactView Generation 1 satellite AIS data and the capabilities of the ShipView product.

Numbers Game: Why 65 Satellites is Just Right for exactView RT

Posted by Philip Miller on Aug 2, 2016 11:14:41 AM

exactViewRT powered by Harris will have 65 payloads onboard the Iridium NEXT constellation of satellites. After launch, each satellite is moved into its pre-assigned position relative to the other satellites.  Once there, this position is maintained throughout the life of the constellation by using fuel on each satellite to make course corrections known as “station keeping”. In other words, not all orbits around the earth are equal and knowing which orbits to put your satellites in and how to keep them where you put them is fundamentally critical to providing a satellite based service.  It truly is all about “Orbital Mechanics”.
