Under the agreement exactEarth will provide its global shipping data feed, exactAIS, to GSTS to aid in the creation of a maritime vessel management capability for vessels chartered by Resolute Forest Products.
This will include analysis of vessel movements from port to port through the use of the space based vessel tracking data provided by exactEarth.
"The vessel information data provided by exactEarth enables us to provide intelligent solutions for vessels at any point on the globe, including the Arctic regions," said Richard Kolacz, president and co-founder of GSTS.
Funding from the Government of Canada, through the Fed Dev Enterprise programme, has supported the development of this system through an award to GSTS.
"We are delighted to be involved in this important project," added Peter Mabson, president of exactEarth.
"We are beginning to see more and more examples of where the global nature of our unique data products can be applied, and it is particularly pleasing to be able to support this vital work aimed at developing sustainable solutions and reducing environmental impact."
