HawkEye 360, the first commercial company to use formation-flying satellites to create a new class of radio frequency (RF) data and data analytics, announced that Cluster 2 — the company's second cluster of satellites — has successfully been deployed into orbit.
After launching aboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 on Sunday, the trio of satellites was dispensed from Spaceflight Inc.’s Sherpa-FX orbital transfer vehicle and has established communications with the HawkEye 360 satellite operations center. In the weeks ahead, the satellites will be fully tested, commissioned, and moved into their final formation needed to detect, characterize and gelocate RF signals.
"The expansion of our pioneering constellation is the first of several strong steps we have planned to multiply our existing capabilities and explore new possibilities for RF geospatial intelligence," said CEO John Serafini. "We are proud to be the leading provider of RF insights to U.S. government, international government, commercial and humanitarian interests, and we believe our newest deployment, which increases the frequency, quality and quantity of insights we are able to deliver, will be an invaluable resource for our customers."
