Maxar Technologies is making a strategic investment in Aurora Insight, a radio frequency (RF) data provider. Aurora announced the strategic investment on Wednesday but did not share the investment amount. 

Aurora Insight measures the global RF environment with terrestrial and satellite-based sensors to provide data on spectrum and wireless network infrastructure. The company has three RF-sensing satellites on orbit. 

The company said this investment will accelerate satellite technology development, expand its product offering and help enter emerging markets. Maxar and Aurora Insight also anticipate combining Aurora Insight’s RF spectrum mapping capabilities with Maxar’s geospatial solutions, in order to develop a radio frequency-enhanced GEOINT solution for government and commercial customers.

“By combining Aurora Insight’s spectrum data with Maxar’s high-resolution imagery, AI analytics and 3D capabilities, we can unlock new opportunities to support customers with valuable data in the 5G era and beyond,” said Aurora Insight CEO and Co-Founder Jennifer Alvarez.
