HawkEye 360 uses satellites that fly in a commercially unique formation to independently pinpoint the geographical origin of a wide range of radio frequency (RF) signals. This proprietary source of data enables HawkEye 360 to locate and analyze previously undetected activity, providing new insights for maritime, emergency response, and spectrum analysis applications.
HawkEye 360 Chief Executive Officer John Serafini said the company is extremely honored to have Sandy and Doug join the HawkEye 360 team as advisory board members. Both have an extensive list of accomplishments and invaluable knowledge that will help guide HawkEye 360 as the firm continues to grow.
