Vessel Out of Range

    Dear Bhavya,

    Thank you for contacting MarineTraffic.

    It is my understanding that you are interested in tracking the vessel below:

    From what I can see, her latest position was received 01-01-2020 00:02 LT UTC via Satellite AIS, around Malacca Strait at Latitude / Longitude: 9.848685° / 92.62409°.

    Please let me explain that while all MarineTraffic users have access to positions recorded by our network of terrestrial stations, satellite AIS positions are available with our satellite services.

    In order to get more updated positions and track only specific number of vessels via satellite, you may consider our SAT Flexible.

    To purchase it, simply go here:
    and select the number of vessels you wish to track to start your 7-day trial of this service.

    You will also need to activate the "SAT" button for the vessel you're interested in.

    With the SAT option activated, you gain access to the latest position available, regardless if it was received via terrestrial or satellite meas.

    However, the frequency of satellite positions is not standard, mainly due to the fact that it depends on the number of times that satellites pass above the specific Vessel, the strength of her signal and the weather conditions at the time.
    High traffic and Vessel density Areas are also some of the hardest ones to cover, even via satellite, as the number of signals transmitted simultaneously results in multiple vessels using the same time slot, and, consequently, in a number of lost transmissions.

    You can take a look at the above and let me how how you want to proceed.
    I will be more than happy to assist you further.

    Kind regards,
