John Beckner, CEO, Horizon Technologies said: “We are happy to add another end-user to the list of countries who operate our FlyingFish and new BlackFish SIGINT systems. FlyingFish is in operation 24/7 around the globe saving refugees, combating illegal fishing, piracy, terrorism and transshipments.”

“DSEI was a very successful show for us, and we were very pleased with the attendance at the show and the quality of the visitors. Special thanks to ADS as well as DIT and DSO for arranging delegation visits. We had very good meetings for both our Aerospace and Space sectors. Customer interest is certainly high for our upcoming Amber CubeSat Launch.”
