01 Apr 2020 New FlyingFish™ Orders for Horizon Technologies / 2nd AMBER™ CubeSat to be Launched in 2021
London, UK— Horizon Technologies is pleased to announce a £500+K order for an undisclosed quantity of FlyingFish™ SIGINT systems from a Sub-Saharan African country. The units are to be delivered as soon as possible under a UOR (Urgent Operational Requirement).
Horizon Technologies CEO John Beckner stated, “Thanks to our COVID-19 preparations which started earlier this year, and most importantly, the resilience of our UK-based supply chain in these difficult times, we will be able to deliver these new FlyingFish™ systems on time.”
“Our FlyingFish™ revenue continues to expand, and we are pleased to announce that we have just finished our best First Quarter since our founding.” Beckner adds, “In our space business segment, we have started planning our Amber-2 launch, and are in negotiations with our partner AAC-Clyde Space for the launch scheduled for 2021. Amber-2 will provide our customers with lower latency and will have additional capabilities (which result in an expanded dataset) to include GNSS Jamming/Spoofing geolocation as requested by a number of our government customers. Despite the pandemic, Horizon Technologies is still on schedule with Amber™ though this could change at any time. Amber™ is a Public/Private partnership with the UK Government to provide CubeSat-driven Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) data to our UK and worldwide government end-users.”

They are the OEM for the FlyingFish™ system which is flying on numerous ISR aircraft worldwide. FlyingFish™ systems fly daily on missions for NATO, FRONTEX and many international customers.
