US Coast Guard Selects High Data Usage Option for AIS
US Coast Guard has selected the high usage option for Automatic Identification System data from the AIS concept demonstration satellite under its agreement with Orbcomm, an American satellite data communications company.
According to Orbcomm, it will also modify Automatic Identification System (AIS) satellite and ground software and provide additional technical support to the US Coast Guard. In total, these amendments add almost $500,000 in revenue over the next 12-months.
