HawkEye 360 Releases 1st RF Signal Mapping Product
HawkEye 360 launched RFGeo, a first-of-its-kind radio frequency (RF) signal mapping product. RFGeo uses the data generated by the HawkEye Constellation of space-based Radio Frequency (RF) sensing satellites to identify and geolocate RF signals, providing a new global geospatial data layer. RFGeo is the company’s first commercially available product.
RFGeo will initially support identification and geolocation of maritime Very High Frequency (VHF) radio channels, marine emergency distress beacons, and vessel Automatic Identification System (AIS) signals. In the coming months, HawkEye 360 will expand the signal catalog to support more applications. Mapping RF signals will aims to provide valuable insights for many markets, such as defense, border security, maritime, emergency response and telecommunications.
“With the launch of RFGeo, HawkEye 360 is now fulfilling customer orders,” said HawkEye 360 Chief Executive Officer John Serafini. “Through RFGeo, customers will access the powerful RF analytics generated by our satellite constellation so they can gain a more comprehensive view of the world. We are much more than just a data source. HawkEye 360 is bringing truly compelling RF analytics to the market, further cementing our position as an exciting and fast-growing leader in the new space field.”
