Vessel monitoring technology partnership makes tracking more accurate

Class B AIS transponder Weatherdock's VMS Track-Pro incorporates exactEarth’s exactTrax small vessel monitoring technology

Accurate vessel monitoring is now easier with a technology offering that combines monitoring with a transponder.

exactEarth’s exactTrax small vessel monitoring technology is now incorporated into the VMS Track-Pro, the newest Class B AIS transponder from Weatherdock.

“We recently announced that our exactTrax service is now available for integration with all AIS transceiver manufacturers and, as an internationally recognized supplier of high-quality AIS hardware, we couldn’t be more pleased to add Weatherdock to our growing list of suppliers,” said Peter Mabson, CEO of exactEarth.


VMS Track-Pro is thought to be the world’s first single-bracket, battery powered and purpose-built AIS-based tracking solution.

It is designed to be a secure, easy-to-use, and cost-effective solution for tracking fishing vessels and other small crafts.

VMS Track-Pro was developed with extensive input and feedback from fishermen, as well as detailed analysis of homeland security requirements.

Critical intelligence

The data services resulting from the combined Class B AIS transponder with CML microprocessors and exactTrax technology provide the ability to securely monitor artisanal and small-scale commercial fishing boats and small commercial work boats, said exactEarth.

It added that vessel monitoring and tracking can help enable safety and 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.
