HawkEye 360, a portfolio company of Allied Minds, successfully commissioned the three Pathfinder satellites launched in December 2018. The company is using the satellites to perform data verification and strategic demonstrations with select customers.
HawkEye 360 is the first commercial enterprise to develop its capability to independently detect and geolocate sources of diverse RF signals. The company aims to use its proprietary data to aid in better law enforcement in the maritime sector in the pursuit of illegal activity, as well as search and seizure efforts.
The next cluster of satellites should be launched later this year, with broader signal range, on-board-processing and data capabilities.
John Serafini, HawkEye 360’s CEO commented: “We are generating an entirely new data source for important commercial, defence, and intelligence applications around the world. As the first to be delivering this type of commercial data, HawkEye 360 will help our customers make more timely and precise decisions. Our team has shown unbelievable dedication and passion to reach a new milestone in space technology in just a few short years.”
