      HawkEye 360 revealed that its RFGeo product can now map an expanded catalog of signals, aiming to address new markets such as border security or anti-poaching efforts. RFGeo identifies and geolocates Radio Frequency (RF) signals collected by HawkEye 360’s satellite constellation. It is the first commercially available product offering global spectrum awareness across a broad range of radio signals.

      With this update, HawkEye 360 expands beyond Very-High Frequency (VHF) and X-band to include the first RFGeo signals in the Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) and L-band frequencies. In the UHF band, RFGeo is now mapping signals for push-to-talk radios commonly used across land. Through mapping these types of radios, HawkEye 360 can help clients uncover anomalous behaviors for applications such as finding cross-border smuggling operations or poaching activities in nature preserves.

      “We are excited to introduce an expanded signal catalog to address new markets as we rapidly scale the company after closing our Series B funding,” said Alex Fox, Executive Vice-President for Sales and Marketing, HawkEye 360. “We continue to innovate and rapidly advance our capabilities as the world leader in the emerging space-based RF data and analytics market. These new signals deliver a more comprehensive view of the world to improve the utility of our RF analytics.”
