In the ever-changing marine environment, where there is a vital need for the persistent monitoring of human activity to forecast defence challenges, exactAIS® has become a very powerful tool in the delivery of maritime domain awareness to a variety of maritime and geo-intelligence users.

exactAIS is evolving in the context of Activity Based Intelligence (ABI) as a crucial aid to effective decision making and proactive response to ensure national defence and security. The exactAIS service supports national security initiatives through a number of targeted applications including mission planning, coastal monitoring integration and detection of suspicious vessel behaviour.

In turn, security organisations can:

  • Filter out "friendly" ships to then locate and investigate suspicious ship movements at sea

  • Save time and money when dispatching surveillance assets and reduce the need for routine patrol missions
