exactEarth 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. The three-year subscription revenue contract is valued at USD $1.75 million in total.
With more than 7,500 km of coastline and significant off-shore resources, keeping track of maritime activity is paramount to maintaining India’s security and economic activity. exactEarth’s Satellite-AIS technology will help our client to identify, detect and track vessels of interest and to secure the country’s maritime borders.
“We are very pleased to have won this competitive bid, which has resulted in our first data services agreement for this client,” said Peter Mabson, CEO of exactEarth. “During 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.”
