Here’s details of an innovative and revolutionary new solution for tracking the millions of small vessels traversing our oceans daily around the globe. Central to this solution is a jointly developed new technology called ABSEA™ (Advanced Class B Satellite Enabled AIS) that, for the first time, enables low power AIS transceivers to be tracked from space. Small and inexpensive ABSEA enabled AIS devices, which can be easily installed on small commercial and leisure vessels with just a clip-on tamper proof battery powered unit, can now be tracked by the exactEarth existing satellite constellation.
This new solution offers customers real time near-coastal tracking using existing coastal AIS infrastructure and rapid update satellite tracking with exactEarth utilizing unique ABSEA technology when vessels are outside coastal range. This ensures that every vessel is tracked regardless of location.
