exactEarth Ltd. reports that its exactTrax small vessel monitoring technology is now incorporated into Alltek Marine Electronic Corp's (AMEC) AIS Tracking Beacon (TB560).
The AMEC TB560 is a simplified Class B AIS device that offers an efficient and cost-effective vessel monitoring solution within AIS VHF transmission range. Now outfitted with exactTrax technology from exactEarth, which extends small vessel tracking beyond traditional coastal surveillance, the AMEC TB560 can reliably be detected from space.
exactTrax allows for the secure transmission and reliable detection of signals from the millions of artisanal and small-scale commercial fishing boats and small commercial work boats currently operating around the world.
Monitoring and tracking vessels equipped with exactTrax-enabled transceivers supports safety of life at sea and delivers an unprecedented ability to immediately respond in emergency situations.
Tracking these vessels can also provide critical intelligence into a variety of marine applications such as fisheries protection, environmental preservation, and maritime surveillance/security through improved 'dark' target analysis.
AMEC's TB560 unit is uniquely equipped with an optional smoke detector and water submersion detector for additional safety alerts that can notify operators immediately of security incidents aboard the vessel.
"We are very pleased to add Alltek Marine to our growing list of partners for our small vessel tracking offering," said Peter Mabson, CEO of exactEarth.
"Embedding exactTrax within the innovative TB560 gives us the opportunity to reach even more potential users worldwide and offer customers real choice in their platform options."
"Entering this agreement with exactEarth is very exciting for the AMEC team," said H.A. Chen, President of Alltek Marine.
"We have worked hard to establish our industry-leading TB560 beacon and now partnering with exactEarth for enhanced long-range tracking of our devices will offer a distinct advantage to our growing customer base."
