HawkEye 360 brings space-based radio frequency mapping and analytics to new applications
Denver CO (SPX) Jul 28, 2016
HawkEye 360 and Lockheed Martin are collaborating to apply HawkEye 360's radio frequency (RF) detection and mapping technology in new markets. HawkEye 360 plans to deploy a constellation of small satellites in low-Earth orbit at less than 600 km (383 miles) from the Earth's surface, to identify, locate and analyze RF signals globally. Pending various regulatory approvals of this system and its capabilities, Lockheed Martin and HawkEye 360 will work to apply the space-based RF data and analytics ca ... read more
