Make Enhanced Satellite AIS work for you

Enhanced Satellite AIS provides easy to use, customizable data without any gaps in coverage – even in the busiest shipping lanes.

At Spire Maritime, we provide you with several data options and one of our solutions to common industry challenges, Enhanced Satellite AIS, has been receiving great reviews. As the maritime industry faces a challenging year of growth and climate change, solution providers are looking at new and innovative ways to use data sets to help ship operators, brokers, and port officials optimize their operations. Data and predictive analytics have become an important part of day-to-day maritime operations. From companies looking to bolster profit margins and safeguard cargo to port operators scheduling open port times.

Address Growth and Profitability

Enhanced Satellite AIS uses thousands of satellite-enabled AIS receivers traveling throughout the busiest shipping lanes in the world. It provides an unprecedented frequency of position updates in areas that are out of the reach of terrestrial collection and overwhelm other satellite AIS providers. This means more AIS messages, more unique MMSIs, and greater control of ship operations. From mapping the most efficient routes for fuel economy to plotting supply and demand based on ship location, ship operators can fine-tune logistics and port arrivals to optimize revenue.

Gain a Competitive Edge

As growth and competition heat up, maritime executives sought a way to gain an advantage over competitors but also required data to help them manage and improve their profitability. Many maritime products can be difficult to use or they provide a template of information that isn’t tailored to the special needs of the maritime industry. A common challenge for the industry is gaps in position updates in high Traffic Zones (HTZ), this leads to a lack of transparency and can disrupt many operations from commodity tracking to port management and safety at sea. Enhanced Satellite AIS is key to resolving these issues and get one-step-ahead of the competition.

The South China Sea is the most dynamic area in global maritime trade. Having gaps in data in this area has been a huge problem for all stakeholders in the maritime sector.
