FlyingFish to appear at DSEI

Posted 21 August 2015

Horizon Technologies will be demonstrating its new second generation FlyingFish at DSEI, being held 15-18 September at ExCel, London.

Above: Horizon Technologies - which has just become a member of ADS - recently finalised a FlyingFish order from a NATO repeat customer and FlyingFish will be deployed immediately in aircraft patrolling the Mediterranean in support of FRONTEX, vis-a-vis refugees coming from North Africa.

Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEI) is the world's largest land, sea and air, defence and security exhibition, bringing together senior international trade and military experts from across the entire supply chain.

Horizon will be exhibiting the new second generation FlyingFish which replaces the current operationally proven Legacy FlyingFish (above), released two years ago. The newest version of FlyingFish is able to be installed on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in addition to the more traditional fixed-wing ISR aircraft configurations.

“Our customers have been asking for a lighter weight tactical system which can beintegrated on a range of UAVs. FlyingFish is a product designedfor those countries who do not, or cannot, operate some of the SIGINT systems offered by the large US Prime Contractors”, said John Beckner, Horizon’s CEO.

“We have had great success in this niche market to date and many of our customers who use Legacy FlyingFish want to be able to install it in UAVs to complement their manned ISR aircraft.”

There is an increasing need for Air Forces and intelligence services to deploy tactical Satellite Monitoring Systemswhich allow them to locate targets in real-time and take action against them immediately if necessary. Often target data from strategic or other coalition SIGINT systems has an inherent lag time which affects decision-making and delays immediate tasking of ground and other forces. With FlyingFish, whether in a manned or unmanned ISR platform, the user can easily locate and utilise the real-time intelligence provided by the system.

FlyingFish is now operational with a number of NATO and other air forces and has a failure-free record in supporting customer SIGINT missions on three continents.

Horizon Technologies is a UK small business and FlyingFish has been in production since 2012. FlyingFish is manufactured in the UK and is available worldwide.
