HERNDON, Va., Jan. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- HawkEye 360 Inc., the first commercial company to use formation-flying satellites to create a new class of radio frequency (RF) data and data analytics, today announced that Cluster 2 — the company's second cluster of satellites — has successfully been deployed into orbit.
After launching aboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 on Sunday, the trio of satellites was dispensed from Spaceflight Inc.'s Sherpa-FX orbital transfer vehicle and has established communications with the HawkEye 360 satellite operations center. In the weeks ahead, the satellites will be fully tested, commissioned, and moved into their final formation needed to detect, characterize and gelocate RF signals.
"The expansion of our pioneering constellation is the first of several strong steps we have planned to multiply our existing capabilities and explore new possibilities for RF geospatial intelligence," said CEO John Serafini. "We are proud to be the leading provider of RF insights to U.S. government, international government, commercial and humanitarian interests, and we believe our newest deployment, which increases the frequency, quality and quantity of insights we are able to deliver, will be an invaluable resource for our customers."
The company processes and analyzes RF signal data collected by the satellites to deliver actionable insights and a unique layer of knowledge for national security operations, maritime domain awareness, environmental protection and numerous additional applications.
Cluster 2 follows the company's first Pathfinder cluster of satellites, launched two years ago, but is significantly more powerful. The new satellites can process data at a faster rate — leading to increased geolocations with an even greater degree of accuracy — and are equipped with new software-defined radios (SDR) that can simultaneously collect a wide range of frequencies. These workhorse satellites provide significant capacity increases to meet the demand for robust space-based RF data and analytics required by HawkEye's customers.
"Our first satellites were a tremendous success — a perfect proof of concept of the value and utility of this type of geospatial intelligence," said COO Rob Rainhart. "But these new satellites will supercharge our offerings to customers, with revisit rates and data collection an order of magnitude greater than before. Our engineers and partners have raised the bar, delivering the most capable commercial RF satellites ever built into orbit."
HawkEye 360 will launch five additional clusters over the next 18 months (15 satellites) to establish our initial baseline constellation. Once launched, the company's constellation will provide a global revisit rate of less than an hour to support time-sensitive monitoring of active and developing situations.

Crude oil prices have continued to modestly tick higher in the past few days after the U.S. President Donald Trump signed a new stimulus bill. Fundamental analysis: Expectations for a higher demand Crude oil prices climbed on hopes that the fresh pandemic stimulus in the U.S. will drive fuel demand up and stimulate economic growth, making investors more willing to take risks. Are you looking for fast-news, hot-tips and market analysis? Sign-up for the Invezz newsletter, today. “Oil appears to be underpinned by the passing of the U.S. stimulus and government funding omnibus legislation,” said Jeffrey Halley, a market analyst at OANDA. On Monday, the U.S. House of Representatives led by Democrats voted to respond to President Donald Trump’s demand for coronavirus $2,000 relief checks. The Republican members of the Senate are expected to vote next. Global stocks ticked higher for a fourth consecutive session in hopes of further stimulus but concerns over the pandemic capped the gains quickly. After a new variant of coronavirus was discovered in Britain, the government decided to impose tougher restrictions, weighing on short-term demand and prices. On the other hand, investors are waiting for the next OPEC+ meeting, scheduled for January 4.
NEW YORK, July 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of launching their online COVID-19 Resource Center, Jumo Health, the global provider of age appropriate health care resources, has donated a supply of its COVID-19 related resources to hundreds of hospitals whose service areas cover nearly 159 million people. This service has been provided at no cost to the hospitals in partnership with The Hibbert Group.
Using the most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), Jumo Health's team of medical researchers, writers, and animators created culturally sensitive print and digital resources to provide information on this specific coronavirus, how to protect yourself and the community to stop the spread, and more.
"We are honored to assist Jumo Health in their efforts to educate people on COVID-19 and other chronic illnesses. We join them in expressing our gratitude to the frontline workers dedicated to fighting this unprecedented pandemic," said Tim Moonan, CEO of The Hibbert Group.
Raising Health Literacy to Alleviate Fear of the UnknownNearly 90% of the population is health illiterate which includes not having access to information that can promote better health outcomes. Building on its commitment to provide patient friendly, evidence based information that addresses the fundamental issues of health literacy - including age, education attainment, and cultural bias - Jumo Health published a suite of highly visual COVID-19 resources that enable patients and caregivers to make informed decisions and act upon physicians' instructions.
"The unfortunate reality is that the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated a chronic issue that has plagued the US and world countries for decades and this disparity in health literacy has proven to cripple communities and stifle economies. Thanks to our friends at The Hibbert Group, we are able to work together to ensure access to education at the point of care is available to allow frontline workers to focus on what they do best - administering care," shared Kevin Aniskovich, Jumo Health President and CEO.
