Sigint Flying FIsh

London, UK— Horizon Technologies is pleased to announce a £1.5+ Million Pound order for FlyingFish™ airborne SIGINT systems for use on a NATO country’s fixed-wing ISR aircraft. Horizon Technologies’ CEO John Beckner commented, “This recent order is further confirmation of Horizon Technologies’ position as the leading supplier of exportable airborne Sat Phone SIGINT systems. Following a banner year in 2019, we expect to more than double our sales in 2020.”

Beckner added, “Horizon Technologies’ strong growth is being fueled by new products: Firstly, our FlyingFish™ Mission Management System (FMMS) is now making it easy for any operator to add FlyingFish™ to current aircraft tactical mission management systems. FlyingFish™ becomes “plug and play” and appears just like any other sensor on the aircraft. Secondly, our Xtender product is now in production. We will be delivering our first production Xtender system on a UAV to a government end-user in the Middle East.” Xtender is a transformational product which puts FlyingFish™ SIGINT capability in even the smallest tactical UAVs.

In addition to current legacy business, Horizon Technologies is on schedule with the UK Satellite Applications Catapult’s IOD-3 Amber™ mission to be launched later this year. IOD-3 Amber™, part funded by UK government, is the demonstrator mission for what will be the UK’s first SIGINT CubeSat constellation. Amber™ provides Data as a Service (DaaS) via subscription to allied countries with Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) requirements. Numerous countries/government agencies around the world have already signed up to receive Amber™ MDA data once it is operational. A great deal of work is currently underway in various countries to integrate Amber™ data into these countries’ existing ESM libraries and strategic intelligence data bases. Based on customer acceptance to date, Amber™ will have a major role in stopping current undetected illegal maritime activity.

Horizon Technologies is the world leader in airborne satellite phone monitoring systems for ISR applications, equipping governments worldwide by enhancing their SIGINT capabilities. They are the OEM for the FlyingFish™ system which is flying on numerous ISR aircraft worldwide. FlyingFish™ systems fly daily on missions for NATO and FRONTEX. Horizon Technologies has offices in the United Kingdom, and the USA. In 2020, Horizon Space Technologies, as part of a Public/Private partnership with the UK Government, will be launching the first of their Amber™ commercial SIGINT CubeSats and providing customers with a new Maritime Intelligence Data Service.
