ExactEarth Europe Limited, a U.K. subsidiary of exactEarth Ltd, the leading provider of satellite Automatic Identification System (AIS) data services, has been awarded a 1.1 million pound (approximately $1.3 million) grant from the UK Space Agency under its International Partnerships Program (IPP). The IPP funding will support the operational deployment of exactEarth’s satellite AIS-based small vessel tracking technology “exactTrax” to improve Safety Of Life At Sea (SOLAS) for South Africa’s small boat owners and operators — in particular the artisanal fishing sector.
