HawkEye 360 to Provide RF Data-Sharing Support Services Under NIWC Contract
The Naval Information Warfare Center has awarded HawkEye 360 a contract for radio frequency data and related services.
HawkEye 360 will use SeaVision, a web-based platform the U.S. military and its allies use to share unclassified information needed to improve maritime domain awareness. The company will use SeaVision to share RF data and analytics and train the Navy’s partners in Southeast Asia and the Indo-Pacific region.
The $12.25 million contract supports the Indo-Pacific Partnership for Maritime Domain Awareness, HawkEye 360 said Tuesday.
The NIWC deal is one of several contracts the company secured in recent months in support of military capabilities development.
In January, HawkEye 360 partnered with Slingshot Aerospace to build a threat detection system for the U.S. Space Force. Under the partnership, data from HawkEye’s RF mapping spacecraft was ingested into Slingshot’s cloud platform to identify, characterize and locate GPS-disrupting RF signals.
In August 2022, the U.S. Army awarded the company a two-year cooperative research and development agreement to demonstrate how its RF data and analytics can support military surveillance operations.
