HawkEye 360 introduces Mission Space platform for RF GEOINT
On February 11, Herndon, VA-based HawkEye 360 Inc., the first commercial company to use formation-flying satellites to create a new class of radio frequency (RF) data and analytics, launched Mission Space, the first commercial platform purpose-built to facilitate the analysis of RF geospatial intelligence.
Mission Space brings HawkEye 360 RF data and analytics together to create an intuitive experience. Through visualizing a holistic picture of worldwide RF activity, Mission Space bridges the interpretation gap between the collection and analysis of RF data.
“Mission Space transforms the world of RF geospatial intelligence,” said Tim Pavlick, vice president of product, HawkEye 360. “We want any analyst to be able to discover new mission insights with our unique analytics. Before today, only highly trained experts could access and interpret RF data. With Mission Space, we democratize RF geospatial intelligence, and leverage automation to enable a larger community to understand and exploit insights derived from RF signals. Mission Space is the flagship of our growing product portfolio.”
Mission Space automates the ingestion and visualization of RF signal data and analytics, allowing analysts to intuitively manipulate and explore available information within one frame of view. Analysts can see trends and patterns and in-depth detail about RF signals, all while maintaining a summary of RF activity for context.
“Mission Space is a breakthrough for commercial RF mapping and is unrivaled in the commercial sector,” said Alex Fox, executive vice president, HawkEye 360. “The platform will empower our customers to efficiently extract immense value from our RF signal subscription services. It will accelerate user adoption of commercial RF analytics across the global defense, intelligence, commercial and humanitarian sectors.”
Mission Space leverages HawkEye 360’s proprietary algorithms to automatically identify and characterize specific behaviors tied to RF signal data. Mission Space also merges contextual maritime information to specific RF geolocations to include a vessel’s identity, history, past sanction violations, and identified behavior, significantly enhancing situational awareness.
With Mission Space, analysts can automate routine functions, such as identifying RF activity in designated areas of interest or vessel behavior patterns. By automating these workflows, analysts can identify critical insights and gather actionable intelligence more quickly to keep pace with evolving events.
