Satellite tracking, re-invented for you!

in Trends by

Satellite AIS is great for tracking vessels all around the world, even on high seas. And if you still believe that it is only for big companies with big budgets, we have excellent news for you:

We have just extended FleetMon’s successful Satellite AIS Polling service, making it easier than ever!

You can now activate satellite tracking for any vessel at the click of a button, and track the ship for two entire weeks with full access to all available FleetMon data.

Got an important shipment to follow but you’re not ready for the full glory of a FleetMon Unlimited Sat plan? Then this new service is for you — just book the ships you really need and as long as you need.

Thousands of FleetMon users are already following their ships using the Satellite Polling service. Secure your access to satellite AIS tracking data now, too!


Decide yourself if you need an instant single position report, or if you prefer full tracking and data access. Just have a look into the voyage information on the vessel’s detail page:


Here you can access the most recent satellite position available for your ship, using the button “Show a single update”.

FleetMon will unveil the ship’s position and deliver an additional email report straight to your inbox.


So far, so good – but what if you want to stay up to date on your vessel’s progress over the next couple of days, or need deeper insight into all tracking information available for it?

Use the button “Track this vessel for 14 days” and unlock continuous deepwater tracking plus full access to all available FleetMon data for this ship!


FleetMon Explorer, FleetMon Mobile, your My Fleet view and the vessel’s detail page will now continuously reflect the most recent position available.

In addition to live data, the voyage log with detailed visualization of the past ship track will include the last 30 days, the port call history will reach back 12 months and all available schedule information for the coming 30 days will be visible for you.

Enjoy FleetMon’s premium service for the vessels of your choice! Remember, you’ll find it on any vessel’s detail page.

As always, we’d be happy if you share your feedback, wishes and questions with us in the comments.
And if you’re not finding what you are looking for, or if you would like to discuss a customized data service we are here to help!

FleetMon Explorer has been updated for you!

in Community, Trends by

Having access to global vessel tracking data is vital for almost everyone related to the maritime industry. Traffic analyses, fleet and operations monitoring, logistics and scheduling… whatever you’re in, realtime tracking data allows you to think one step ahead.

The fresh FleetMon Explorer update gives you new tools to assess vessel movements from global scale to port operations, quickly filtering down to what you really want to see!

Discover the handy vessel type and signal age filters, and easily pull up all your personal fleets – now displayed on brilliant new map layers. Look through a choice of our favorite views here or directly open FleetMon Explorer and try it yourself!

FleetMon Explorer - Filter vessels by type

FleetMon introduces a vessel type filter, allowing you to sort the ships on your screen by category. Quickly assess the number of tankers in the Persian Gulf and pleasure crafts in the Mediterranean, or just filter out vessel types that are not relevant for you.


Add vessels of interest to your My Fleet list and create individual tags to categorize your fleet as you choose. FleetMon Explorer fully supports your tagging system and displays your fleet in a separate view.


Activate different weather layers to assess vessel performance and progress. Additional insight into weather situation and forecast at a ship’s position is available on its detail page and will help you to schedule your operations.


From global traffic overview to detailed operations monitoring: Zoom down to see the ships in true dimensions — perfect for following maneuvers in real time on FleetMon’s sea charts.


Use the signal age slider or filter for terrestrial AIS, captured by land-based antennas, if you want to see live vessel movements only. Include satellite AIS data to see ships on high seas and have the signal age displayed directly on the map for quick analysis of the traffic situation.

Like what you see here? Sign-up for a free trial of our satellite-enabled plans on and get a first-hand experience of FleetMon Explorer together with FleetMon’s superior satellite AIS tracking quality, or talk to our sales team to discuss your project!
