Horizon Aerospace Technologies Division has received an order for a FlyingFish™ FF3/S Sat Phone geolocation system (and ancillary items) from a UAE prime contractor for use on a surveillance aircraft to monitor critical infrastructure in the region.
The order is valued at approximately £400,000 and delivery will take place in 2021 pending export approval.
Horizon Technologies’ AMBER™ Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) Intelligence system was featured on the UK Government’s stand at the show and attendees viewed the AMBER™ cubesats small size as well as the powerful payload and additional capabilities.
AMBER™ is a 2nd Generation, cubesat-based, SIGINT system and will be operational later in 2021. It is a public/private partnership with the UK Government and the UK National Maritime Information Centre (NMIC), slated to be the first consumer for AMBER™ intelligence data.
“IDEX has been a huge success for Horizon Technologies,” Horizon Technologies CEO John Beckner said while attending IDEX 2021. He continued, “It was good to resume face-to-face meetings with our customers and partners in the region.”
