Become part of the Horizon Space Technologies’ Amber™ constellation dedicated to delivering Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) intelligence data.

Description

The EPIC-6U satellites will be able to locate and track vessels worldwide by geolocating and demodulating RF signals in a system that can be used to fight piracy, illegal trans-shipments, illegal fishing, and refugee smuggling, but can also be used for other purposes such as detecting and tracking a variety of RF emitters. The mission delivers a commercial service and may be extended to include more than ten (10) additional Amber™ CubeSats.
