ExCel, London—”Horizon Technologies was extremely successful at DSEI” (The World’s Leading Defense and Security Show) in London, said Director/Owner, John Beckner. “We received two FlyingFish™ orders from international customers which will be delivered later this year. In addition, we held our first Xtender customer workshop to introduce this transformational SIGINT technology. Xtender changes the way SIGINT is used on the battlefield, and now even company-sized units will be able to get critical SIGINT data in real time without waiting for a strategic asset. We also introduced our Xpod (using Xtender technology), so that smaller Caravan and KingAir aircraft, as well as C-130s, can become ISR platforms with no changes to the aircraft.”
Horizon Technologies’ US team participated in the UAS West Symposium in San Diego, and was proud to be invited to the US DOD Special Operations Command “ThunderDrone” event in Florida earlier this year. “Based on our performance at that event, we expect to have our first US Government contract for Xtender by the end of the year.” added Beckner.
Xtender is proprietary Horizon Technologies technology, and worldwide patents are pending.
