Herndon, Va.-based HawkEye 360 has announced the release of its first product, RFGeo, a radio frequency signal mapping tool, the company announced in a news release.

HawkEye 360 is a radio frequency data analytics startup founded in 2015. This announcement comes after the company recently added two members to its advisory board.

RFGeo was designed to help customers identify and geolocate radio frequency signal,┬ámarine emergency distress beacons and vessel Automatic Identification System signals using HawkEye 360’s satellite constellation. The company said it has plans to expand its catalogue of signals to support additional maritime, defense, border security, emergency response and telecommunications applications.

“RFGeo provides our customers with a new view of activities on Earth using the RF spectrum,” said HawkEye 360 Director of Product Brian Chapman said in a statement. “We are enabling customers to link RF signal geolocations from our RFGeo product to events occurring around the world. RFGeo will help customers monitor RF signals to support a wide range of high-value applications and missions, such as maritime domain awareness.”

This is the first commercially available product that can independently locate, process and track a broad range of signals, HawkEye 360 claims. RFGeo delivers the radio frequency analytics in a standardized format compatible with common GIS software tools for further analysis.
