exactEarth's Latest Satellite Enters Commercial Service

Raising the bar in ship detections from space 
CAMBRIDGE, ON, Nov. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - exactEarth Ltd., the leading provider of 
global satellite AIS data services, has successfully added its latest 
satellite exactView-1 (EV-1) into its commercial service today. EV-1 is the 
most advanced AIS satellite built to date and is performing with increased 
detection rates of up to 40% better than any previous satellite sensors. EV-1 
performance has exceeded industry expectations as daily detection rates are 
consistently reaching 45,000 MMSIs (Maritime Mobile Service Identity number) 
increasing the total exactAIS® Premium global AIS service to approximately 
90,000 unique MMSIs a day. 
EV-1 was launched into an 810 kilometre 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. In addition, two 
further dedicated AIS satellites will be launched in 2013. These will help to 
ensure that exactEarth continues to provide a comprehensive and high 
performance satellite-based AIS service for years to come. 
"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."
