"We are excited to work with Windward to develop the next generation of time critical maritime domain awareness services," said HawkEye 360 CEO John Serafini. "The Windward relationship aligns with our strategy to partner with best in class organizations, servicing established markets that will significantly benefit from our first-of-its-kind global RF geolocation and analytic services."

The partnership will demonstrate how RF analytics provides time critical insights for MDA that were previously impossible, offering significant value to Winward's customer base.

Windward Co-Founder and CEO, Ami Daniel, said: "We're committed to providing our clients with the biggest data and deepest insights to help them solve their maritime problems. That's why we're delighted to be working with HawkEye 360, and look forward to exploring how RF geolocations and analysis can offer our clients an even better service through enhanced risk modelling."
