Agreement expands availability of exactEarth's Small Vessel Tracking Service
CAMBRIDGE, ON, June 27, 2017 /CNW/ - exactEarth Ltd. (“exactEarth”) (TSX: XCT), a leading provider of Satellite AIS data services, has entered into an agreement with CML Microcircuits (“CML”) of the United Kingdom to provide a fast, easy, and cost-effective AIS solution for tracking small vessels. The CML AIS processors (CMX7032/CMX7042) are now fully embedded with exactTrax™ technology.
Utilizing CML’s CMX7032/CMX7042 AIS processors, cost effective, low power exactTrax-enabled transceivers can be easily developed, with a fast route to market and eliminating the need for a long and expensive development process. Existing users of the CMX7032/CMX7042 will have access to a free upgrade to utilize exactTrax.
The exactTrax data service integrates seamlessly with existing maritime domain awareness tools, providing the ability to monitor the millions of artisanal and small-scale commercial fishing boats and small commercial work boats currently operating around the world. This ability to monitor and track vessels equipped with exactTrax enabled transceivers delivers an unrivalled picture into the world’s global maritime activity. These insights can provide critical intelligence into a variety of marine applications such as fisheries protection, environmental preservation, and maritime security through improved ‘dark’ target analysis.
“We recently announced that our exactTrax service is now available for integration with all AIS transceiver manufacturers and our agreement with CML Microcircuits adds to our list of partners that have now integrated the service into their devices,” said Peter Mabson, CEO of exactEarth. “Expanding this list of partners means that we can now reach even more potential users worldwide and offer customers a range of platform options.”
