NZ’s Eagle Technology joins HawkEye satellite partner program


New Zealand’s Eagle Technology has become one of the first firms to sign up for HawkEye 360’s new strategic partner program. Auckland-based Eagle, which provides geographic information systems and geospatial services for New Zealand and the South Pacific Islands, will be able to leverage HawkEye 360’s future constellation of low earth orbit smallsats to support its solutions as a strategic partner.

“HawkEye 360 is building an international network of partners that will help us commercialise and distribute our unique analytics,” said HawkEye 360 chief revenue officer Beau Jarvis. “We consider Eagle Technology a key ally, with expertise to apply our data to better serve the people of New Zealand.” According to HawkEye, Eagle will distribute and build on its analytics for a variety of applications, such as maritime domain awareness and spectral mapping.


“HawkEye 360 can identify and track ships based on radio signals, which will enable Eagle Technology to monitor the oceans around New Zealand and near Antarctica for environmental, economic and security concerns,” the company said. “HawkEye 360
can also precisely map active radio emissions, equipping Eagle Technology to locate interfering signals and advise on how to efficiently deploy spectrum.”


The launch of the strategic partners program followed a successful Series A-3 funding round by HawkEye 360, which raised an additional US$9.6 million for the development of its satellite systems.


HawkEye 360 said it expects to launch its first cluster of three experimental satellites later this year. The new funds will go towards its first commercial satellite cluster. Tony Chan, Commsday
