From NATO to Horizon Technologies... Two Major End User Orders for FlyingFish™

Horizon Technologies has announced two major NATO end user orders for the company's FlyingFish™ airborne SIGINT system totaling more than 14 million euros over the next few years 

John Beckner, CEO, Horizon Technologies, stated, that these orders are significant because they include new fixed and rotary-wing platforms as well as new government end users. The units were ordered for immediate delivery and will be used as part of NATO and FRONTEX missions. The firm's FlyingFish product line continues to be improved and now monitors three satellite networks. Horizon Technologies is the only company which offers exportable DO-160G airborne-qualified SatPhone SIGINT systems for a wide variety of fixed and rotary-wing aircraft. In addition, the company's new remote control software allows for seamless integration into airborne tactical management systems as well as enhanced debrief and exploitation capabilities.

Beckner continued that Horizon Technologies is especially grateful for the strong support provided by the UK Government and in particular the Department of International Trade. The firm's business is growing faster than ever and is expanding into new areas, such as space with the firm's Amber SIGINT smallsat constellation bringing FlyingFish capabilities to customers as a data service starting in 2020.‚ The Horizon Technologies quality management system has been certified by the British Standards Institution (BSI) to EN 9100:2018 (Aerospace).
