FlyingFish™ is a Proven Affordable SIGINT Solution for Manned and Unmanned ISR Platforms

Simultaneous and Passive Monitoring of:

  • Thuraya
  • IsatPhone Pro
  • L-Band Uplink and Downlink Signals
  • Integrated Airborne LNA/Filter Set

FlyingFish™ SD is Horizon Technologies’ 3rd Generation Airborne Satellite Monitoring System (ASMS). It enables governments to passively monitor satellite communications from airborne ISR platforms. FlyingFish™ is a UK Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) product, and is non-ITAR.

FlyingFish™ is a proven Airborne Satellite Monitoring System (ASMS), 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 (where available).

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 better line of sight. FlyingFish™ can also be used for vehicular and shipborne applications.

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 IsatphonePro mode channels.

The system now has a full remote control option via datalink/ethernet. Due to the powerful embedded processor in FlyingFish™, users are now able to run their own tactical mission software on FlyingFish™, and no longer need a separate LRU.
