HawkEye 360, Windward Partner on Maritime Domain Awareness
HawkEye 360 and maritime risk analytics provider Windward partnered to offer new global insights into maritime domain awareness through their combined capabilities. HawkEye 360 will contribute its Radio Frequency (RF) dataset for use on Windward’s digital platform with select customers.
With HawkEye 360’s space-based RF geolocation services and Windward’s technology platform, a customer will be able to validate a vessel’s reported Automatic Identification System (AIS) location and continue tracking once the vessel has gone dark. Windward will integrate HawkEye 360’s services into its platform to provide a seamless customer experience. The partnership aims to help demonstrate how RF analytics provides time critical insights for Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) that were previously impossible, offering significant value to Winward’s customer base.
“We are excited to work with Windward to develop the next generation of time critical maritime domain awareness services,” said HawkEye 360 CEO John Serafini. “The Windward relationship aligns with our strategy to partner with best in class organizations, servicing established markets that will significantly benefit from our first-of-its-kind global RF geolocation and analytic services.
