The privately-funded space-based global wireless signal monitoring system will be developed by Deep Space Industries and UTIAS Space Flight Laboratory
Deep Space Industries, Inc. has been selected by HawkEye 360 as the satellite provider for its Pathfinder small satellite mini-constellation. This is the first step towards the launch of the full commercial constellation of HawkEye 360’s space-based radio frequency mapping and analytics system.
Deep Space Industries (DSI) is the prime contractor for the development and manufacturing of the satellites that will host HawkEye 360’s proprietary data processing technology. The system will use space-based detection of radio signals to locate and characterize wireless spectrum information from Earth.
“To demonstrate the effectiveness of HawkEye 360’s radio frequency mapping, we will be delivering one of the most advanced small satellite constellations to date.” said Daniel Faber, CEO of Deep Space Industries. “We expect that the data products produced by HawkEye 360 will provide extensive value to the communications, transportation, and data analysis markets, a business that demands an operationally robust satellite constellation.”
