Canadian government agrees deal for satellite AIS data

Satellite AIS data company exactEarth has expanded its provision of maritime data services to the Government of Canada, under the terms of a new deal taking effect as of November 1.

The new contract will see exactEarth provide its data services for an initial term of one-year, with an additional four six-month options included in the terms that can be exercised by Canadian authorities, which could extend the agreement by an additional two years.

The contract is expected to generate revenue of CA$424,000 during the initial one-year period, exactEarth says.

“We are pleased to have won this competitive tender, which we believe reflects the high-performance capabilities and value of the 58 operational payloads supporting exactView RT, our real-time Satellite AIS service,” said Peter Mabson, President and CEO of exactEarth.

“This contract expands our existing Satellite AIS subscription services provided to the (Government of Canada) and we continue to explore opportunities to further grow this valued relationship.”
