HawkEye 360 introduces Strategic Partner Program and announces Eagle Technology as the Strategic Partner for New Zealand

(21 August 2018 - HawkEye 360) HawkEye 360, the first commercial company to use formation flying small satellites to create a new class of radio frequency (RF) geoanalytics, is introducing a Strategic Partner Program to broaden access to its products and announces Eagle Technology as the Strategic Partner for New Zealand.

“HawkEye 360 is building an international network of partners that will help us commercialize and distribute our unique analytics,” said Beau Jarvis, Chief Revenue Officer, HawkEye 360. “We consider Eagle Technology a key ally, with expertise to apply our data to better serve the people of New Zealand. Not only are they a talented team of RF and geospatial professionals, but they are also a premier provider to their local and national governments.”

Eagle Technology will distribute and build upon HawkEye 360 analytics for a variety of applications, such as Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) and spectral mapping. HawkEye 360 can identify and track ships based on radio signals, which will enable Eagle Technology to monitor the oceans around New Zealand and near Antarctica for environmental, economic and security concerns. HawkEye 360 can also precisely map active radio emissions, equipping Eagle Technology to locate interfering signals and advise on how to efficiently deploy spectrum.

“Eagle Technology has a long history of bringing innovative solutions to the New Zealand market and HawkEye 360’s data products and solutions are complementary to many of the other geospatial solutions that we already represent. We are excited to be able to take this capability to our local customers to enable and support their critical decision making,” said Duane Eagle, Managing Director, Eagle Technology.
