exactEarth Ltd. is a data services provider using advanced micro-satellite technology to enhance maritime domain awareness. The exactAIS platform offers real-time satellite automatic identification system (AIS) tracking from the data captured by the exactEarth satellite constellation and has the ability to track large fleets – perfect for tracking those distant water fishing fleets.

Get low: exactEarth uses low-orbiting satellites to monitor all AIS-equipped vessels using a satellite constellation and an extensive network of ground stations. The company claims to actively track 165,000 vessels and 7 million AIS messages daily.

Fishing for illegal fishing: exactAIS works to identify suspicious vessels (like those who have turned their AIS transponders off) that are in the vicinity of legal fishing vessels. This data helps authorities identify spoofed false position reports when comparing a vessel’s reported latitude and longitude. exactAIS covers areas, including remote regions, where vessels should not be fishing. These tools help identify patterns and target illegal fishing activity.
