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.”
