To achieve this, MarineTraffic will deploy exactEarth's exactView RT data into its online maritime services products.

MarineTraffic operates 2,000 AIS stations in more than 165 countries around-the-world, delivering comprehensive AIS coastal tracking facility.

The addition of exactEarth's high resolution, real-time AIS data means that MarineTraffic is now the go-to source for any professional seeking the most comprehensive view of shipping movements. Users of our platform exploiting our ocean coverage services will see enhanced functionality thanks to the higher frequency, coverage and less than one-minute latency delivered by the exactView RT satellite constellation. This means that our popular predictive services will be more accurate than ever before, allowing our customers to monitor and plan more precisely,

...Argyris Stasinakis, Partner Business Development, MarineTraffic said.

exactView RT's advanced maritime payloads cover the entire maritime VHF radio band and leverage the architecture of the Iridium NEXT satellite constellation to deliver AIS and other vessel-based VHF data services from more than 500,000 vessels.

This Agreement opens-up another channel for our Satellite-AIS data services and is a further positive indication of the response we have received from customers, prospects and partners regarding the real-time functionality of exactView RT,
