The US Patent Office has Granted Horizon Technologies a Further Patent for Amber™ RF Geolocation Technology

READING, UKHorizon Technologies, is pleased to announce that it was issued a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) titled “Techniques for Determining Geolocations.”  The patent pertains to a system for using a single low-earth orbit (LEO) CubeSat to determine geolocations of earth-based Radio Frequency (RF) emitters.  A corresponding patent was also recently issued by the European Patent Office (EPO).

The patented invention is part of Horizon Technologies’ growing patent portfolio relating to its Amber™ technology, which enables more accurate, and efficient, geolocation without necessitating clusters of CubeSats.

“We are pleased that the US Patent Office has yet again recognized Horizon Technologies’ unique technology by granting this patent concerning the Amber™ system,” said John Beckner, CEO of Horizon Technologies.  Today’s real-world events clearly show the need for innovation in space-based, multi-domain ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance).  This patented invention is especially important for our government and commercial customers addressing their maritime domain awareness requirements.  Due to our unique technology, Horizon Technologies will not provide ‘RF Mapping on command,’ but rather a unique commercial RF intelligence data collected 24/7 and provided to our end-users.”

Amber™ data will be used worldwide for protecting the world’s oceans via “dark target detection”.  Amber™ data, when available later this year, will help companies and governments combat such problems as illegal fishing, pollution, transshipment, piracy, GNSS spoofing, and smuggling.  Horizon Technologies is developing a portfolio of patents and patent applications to protect our key product technologies and thus increase shareholder value.
