Jacobs has made a strategic investment in radio frequency geoanalytics company HawkEye 360, a provider of commercially-available precise mapping solutions for global RF emissions.
Jacobs and HawkEye 360 have also entered into a distribution arrangement under which Jacobs will enhance its digital intelligence suite of technologies and solutions with HawkEye 360’s RF spectrum analytics and collection automation offering.
“Hawkeye 360’s satellite constellation and intuitive RF analytics platform is a game-changer for consumers of geospatial intelligence (GEOINT),” said Jacobs Critical Mission Solutions Senior Vice President of Cyber & Intelligence Caesar Nieves.
Jacobs said its minority investment in HawkEye 360 represents its commitment to spectrum-based geoanalytics technologies and its important role in delivering solutions to address critical challenges for national security, civilian infrastructure, maritime and energy clients.
“Increased spectrum awareness is imperative to near-peer competition and achieving the objectives laid out in the National Security Strategy,” Nieves added. “Leveraging Jacobs’ expansive global position in defense, intelligence and civilian markets, we will be working collaboratively with Hawkeye 360 to unlock new insights about threats, targets and assets of interest.”
