Posted: Monday, June 26, 2017

Nine More Satellites in exactEarth's Real-Time Constellation Now Launched.

Adding to the excitement of our recent news that the first four real-time satellites were brought into service, nine more satellites were just launched into the revolutionary constellation, exactView RT powered by Harris.

The June 25 Iridium NEXT launch successfully carried nine of our real-time payloads into orbit where they are now undergoing standard commissioning and are expected to be brought online in the coming months. With this recent launch, exactEarth now has the most number of AIS receivers in orbit.

By the end of 2017 more than half of the exactEarth RT powered by Harris payloads are expected to be in orbit with the rest following quickly to meet our 2018 completion date. The future is near!
