Horizon Aerospace Technologies is the world leader in airborne Sat Phone monitoring systems for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) applications, equipping governments worldwide by enhancing their SIGINT capabilities.

Description

The AMBER™ Constellation of CubeSats is a Space-Based Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) Data-as-a-Service (DaaS).
The AMBER™ payload will be able to locate and track vessels worldwide by picking up their RF emissions using the L-Band Sat Phone detection sensor package derived from Horizon Technologies’ existing FlyingFish™ system, combined with X and S-Band sensors and an Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver to detect, geolocate, and correlate these signals against the presence of AIS beacons.
