exactEarth agrees $1.2m satellite AIS data deal

Satellite-AIS data company exactEarth has agreed a $1.2 million one-year contract with Geospatial Intelligence (GI) of Australia to provide a range of data and analytics services.

Under the terms of the agreement, exactEarth will provide GI with the company’s real-time exactAIS Platinum Plus product, its Shipview web-based analysis tool, certain historical satellite-AIS data sets and its Position Anomaly analytics application.

The systems can be combined to provide a view of vessel traffic at any point in the world at any time of the day, and are typically used for maritime domain awareness by government authorities and commercial organisations. GI will deploy the services with its customer, an agency within the federal government of Australia.

“We are very pleased to expand our channel partner relationship with GI and, by extension, to once again be providing our satellite-AIS services to the Australian government,” said Peter Mabson, CEO of exactEarth.

“This is a significant contract for the company and one that builds on the momentum we have established over the past couple of years since the launch of exactView RT, our second-generation satellite constellation, and exactAIS, our real-time subscription-based satellite-AIS service.”

exactEarth is currently in the process of being acquired by fellow space-based data company Spire Global, following the announcement of a $161 million acquisition deal in September. The acquisition is expected to close in late 2021 or early 2022.
