The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) extended its contract for another year through ORBCOMM’s partner Kordia. ORBCOMM and Kordia, a leading provider of mission-critical technology solutions in Australia and New Zealand, will provide satellite automatic identification system (AIS) data used for ship tracking and other maritime navigational and safety efforts to AMSA for designated regions and specific maritime projects.

The AMSA contract award, which extends into 2020, was the result of a competitive bid among providers of space-based AIS data services. AMSA is responsible for promoting maritime safety of navigation and protection of the marine environment, as well as providing a national search-and-rescue service.

“Through our collaboration with Kordia, we have been able to help AMSA improve navigation safety and environmental protection by providing our industry-leading satellite AIS data service for the past two years,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s CEO. “Our continued work with AMSA and other national regulatory authorities around the world confirms ORBCOMM’s market leadership in delivering the most complete situational picture of global vessel activity available today.”

ORBCOMM’s AIS service provides comprehensive and reliable global coverage, processing more than 26 million messages from well over 200,000 unique vessels per day through a combination of satellite and terrestrial AIS data for government and commercial customers worldwide.
