This follows a number of 1Q 2022 orders from a variety of customers around the world seeking to upgrade their ISR capabilities. Horizon Technologies’ FlyingFish™ system is currently involved in NATO operations along the Ukrainian border, and is exceeding expectations as part of these high-tempo missions.
Horizon Technologies’ CEO John Beckner said, “Our Aerospace Segment continues to overperform. Sales this quarter have equaled our total sales for Covid-constrained 2021, and we are on track for our best year ever in 2022 with continued profitable growth. We are happy to enable our NATO customers to provide valuable real-time SIGINT data to the requisite C3I networks. The conflict in the Ukraine has clearly shown the value of sophisticated airborne SIGINT capabilities to provide real-time data to our NATO and Allied end-users. Based on the operational experience to date, feedback, and assistance, from our end-users, Horizon Technologies is looking forward to implementing AmberLink as a part of the FlyingFish™/BlackFish™ mission software later this year. AmberLink will provide ISR/SIGINT aircraft with a direct real-time data feed from our Amber™ spaced-based intelligence data system. This will allow these users to have a space-based “over the horizon” SIGINT capability in their manned and unmanned aircraft.”
Horizon Technologies will also be part of the groundbreaking Virgin Orbit Tribute Launch from the UK in the summer of 2022, with the launch of the firm’s Amber-1 SIGINT cubesat. Launches of additional Amber™ cubesats will follow quickly and will be formally announced at the Farnborough Air Show in July.
