NATO is Relying on Horizon Technologies to Provide Airborne SIGINT
Horizon Technologies announced on May 9 that is would be supporting two major NATO end users by providing the company's FlyingFish Airborne Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) system. The contracts total more than £14 Million over the next few years, according to John Beckner, CEO. “These orders are significant because they include new fixed and rotary-wing platforms as well as new government end users. The units were ordered for immediate delivery and will be used as part of NATO and FRONTEX missions,” he said. The U.K.-based company offers exportable DO-160G airborne-qualified satellite phone SIGINT systems for a wide variety of fixed and rotary-wing aircraft. Their remote control software allows for seamless integration into airborne tactical management systems as well as enhanced debrief and exploitation capabilities, the company claimed. Horizon is also expanding its space coverage with their Amber SIGINT CubeSat constellation that will bring FlyingFishTM capabilities as a data service beginning in 2020.
