- Allied Minds portfolio company, HawkEye 360, said Tuesday it had launched its first cluster of three, formation-flying small satellites aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

The satellites would deliver a unique source of radio frequency data that HawkEye 360 would use to create RF-based analytics, Allied Minds said.

The satellites would be able to identify and precisely geolocate a broad set of RF signals from emitters such as VHS push-to-talk radios, maritime radar systems, AIS beacons, VSAT terminals, emergency beacons, and more, it added.

'The successful launch of our Pathfinder satellites is the biggest moment in our company's young history,' said John Serafini, CEO, HawkEye 360.

'I am extremely proud of what our thirty person team has accomplished over the past three years. We combined our varied expertise in small satellites, signals processing, and data analytics to bring a new source of RF information to the market. This is the first time a commercial company has utilized formation flying satellites for RF detection.'
