Is a position update through satellite AIS available for all vessels?

Satellite AIS allows ship tracking independent from shore-based receiver stations. However, in some cases even satellites are unable to capture the AIS reports from the ships. The Update button on the vessel's detail page is only visible when fresher information through satellites is indeed available for the ship.
