exactEarth Ltd. has signed a contract with Antrix Corporation Ltd., the commercial arm of the Indian Space Research Organization, to provide Satellite AIS data services to the Indian Navy. With more than 7,500 km of coastline and significant off-shore resources, keeping track of maritime activity is paramount to maintaining Indiaâs security and economic activity. exactEarthâs Satellite-AIS technology will help ISRO to identify, detect and track vessels of interest and to secure the countryâs maritime borders. âWe are very pleased to have won this competitive bid, which has resulted in our first data services agreement for this client,â said Peter Mabson, CEO of exactEarth. âDuring the course of the agreement, we believe there will be an opportunity to expand our relationship with Antrix Corporation, especially as our second generation constellation comes on-line, and with it the potential for real-time updates.â
