The orders consist of a total package including Group A kit and ILS support for a variety of airborne ISR platforms.

Horizon Technologies CEO John Beckner said: “Despite Covid-19, our business continues to grow and these current orders reflect customers moving their SIGINT requirements forward and getting additional ISR assets into the field more quickly.

"While details are not in the public domain, our products continue to be part of NATO and EU missions worldwide ranging from refugee rescue, counter terrorism, smuggling & trafficking interdiction. FlyingFish reliability is unsurpassed and our customers consider FlyingFish as Essential Mission Equipment in all their critical ISR operations.”

Horizon Technologies is still on track to launch its first Amber CubeSat next year and is working with its UK and international partners on planning for additional launches to commence quickly after Amber-1 is in orbit. Amber is a space-based Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) intelligence system and is part of a public/private partnership with the UK Government.

Beckner noted: “Our expanding FlyingFish sales are having a very beneficial impact on our Space-Based MDA Data as a Service (DaaS) Amber business.”
