HawkEye 360, a defense technology company for space-based radio frequency (RF) data and analytics, announced that its Cluster 7 next-generation satellites have successfully deployed in orbit after launching aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California during the Transporter-7 mission. Communication with the satellites has been established by the company’s operations team.
“We are pleased to report that our Cluster 7 satellites have deployed to orbit following another successful launch,” said HawkEye 360 CEO, John Serafini. “The continued expansion of our RF-sensing satellite constellation enables us to more quickly and accurately reveal global activities to make the world a safer and more secure place.”
The successful launch of the Cluster 7 trio further expands HawkEye 360’s constellation to 21 satellites with extended and improved data collection in the 15-18 GHz range, first introduced in on Cluster 6 launched January 2023.
“This latest launch broadens our collection capabilities around the globe, allowing us to meet the persistently high demand for our RF analytics,” said HawkEye 360 COO, Rob Rainhart. “We are grateful to SEOPS for providing integration support for our team on this mission.”
