HawkEye 360 Inc., which bills itself as the first commercial company to use formation flying satellites to create a new class of radio frequency (RF) data and data analytics, has shipped its second cluster of satellites to the launch site at Cape Canaveral, Florida. The satellites are scheduled to launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9 no earlier than January 2021 as part of Spaceflight Inc.’s SXRS-3 ride-share mission.
HawkEye Cluster 2 is the first of a series of next-generation satellites HawkEye 360 is deploying to complete its baseline constellation.
HawkEye 360’s growing constellation identifies and precisely geolocates a broad set of RF signals from emitters such as VHF marine radios, UHF push-to-talk radios, maritime and land-based radar systems, L-band satellite devices, and emergency beacons. HawkEye 360 processes and analyzes this data using proprietary algorithms to deliver actionable insights to customers.
