Horizon Technologies is a Global Leader in Innovative SIGINT and Space-Based Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) Intelligence Solutions
Horizon Aerospace Technologies is the world leader in airborne Sat Phone monitoring systems for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) applications, equipping governments worldwide by enhancing their SIGINT capabilities. We are the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for the FlyingFish™ SIGINT system which is in operation on numerous platforms worldwide. We participate daily in SAR missions via NATO and FRONTEX in the Mediterranean Sea, counter piracy operations off the coast of East Africa and in Asia, and are heavily involved in international operations in the Levant and in many parts of Africa.
Horizon Space Technologies is the prime contractor for the UK Government CubeSat SIGINT program IOD-3 AMBER™. The AMBER Program is sponsored by the UK National Maritime Intelligence Centre (NMIC) in Portsmouth UK and will consist of six (6) AMBER CubeSats in six orbital planes providing global Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) data to NMIC (led by the Royal Navy). The AMBER constellation will geolocate, and demodulate the following RF signals:
- Automatic Identification System (AIS)
- S/X-Band Vessel Radars
- L-Band Sat Phones
- GNSS/GPS Spoofing

Unique ESM Capability
FlyingFish™ 3rd Generation
The FlyingFish™ Airborne Satellite Phone Monitoring System is a proven affordable SIGINT solution
for manned and unmanned ISR platforms. It allows governments to passively monitor satellite communications.
FlyingFish™ is an idea adjunct solution for those countries possessing strategic SIGINT systems.
Can operate away from current L-band coverage, and together with airborne EO/IR, provides essential
“eyes on target” which is so crucial to today’s missions.
Benefits of Flying Fish™
FlyingFish™ is a proven Airborne Satellite Monitoring System designed to passively and simultaneously
monitor Thuraya and IsatPhone Pro networks.
The system will detect and intercept terminal and call activity within radio line-of-sight including voice, fax, data, and SMS. It provides remote L-band capability for those operators of strategic systems. More than 50% of our users combine FlyingFish™ with current European or Israeli strategic SIGINT systems. FlyingFish™ data is integrated seamlessly into current SIGINT databases.
Increased Interception Ranges
The main advantage of FlyingFish™ as an airborne system is increased interception ranges up to 400 km or 250 nm (altitude and environment dependent) of the satellite terminal uplink due to a better line of sight. FlyingFish™ can also be used for vehicular and shipborne applications.
Simultaneously Monitor Thuraya
and IsatPhone Pro
The 3rd Generation FlyingFish™ is able to simultaneously monitor Thuraya and IsatPhone Pro SAT phones. The system is capable of monitoring a total of 64 duplex channels: 32 Thuraya channels and 32 IsatPhone Pro channels
New Mission Software
Horizon Technologies offers a complete set of mission software which integrates Flying Fish capabilities into any aircraft tactical mission system.
