Jarvis brings more than twenty years of business strategy and international sales experience with remote sensing data and geospatial technologies to enhance opportunities for collaboration and growth.
BOSTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 18, 2017 — HawkEye 360, Inc., which is developing a new, space-based radio frequency (RF) mapping and analytics system that aims to help commercial enterprises and governmental entities make critical decisions, save lives, and better track assets using a constellation of small satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO), today announced the addition of J. Beau Jarvis to the executive management team as Chief Revenue Officer, focused on sales, business development and corporate growth.
Jarvis comes to HawkEye 360 from Planet, where he led that company’s international revenue growth by building a worldwide partner program, successfully establishing an international customer base, and creating comprehensive market strategies for new products and services. Jarvis brings more than 20 years of experience working with remote sensing data and geospatial technologies, having also supported sales at Trimble Geospatial, and offers deep understanding of the commercial markets for those types of solutions across the Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
“HawkEye 360’s RF-based technology solution doesn’t exist anywhere else in the small sat industry, creating opportunities in the commercial market for innovative collaborations, unique products and new services,” said Jarvis. “By combining HawkEye 360’s RF data analysis with partners who offer Earth observation imagery, for example, we can meet growing market demand from domestic and international customers for a complete monitoring solution.”
HawkEye 360’s constellation of small satellites, which will be flown autonomously in formation 600 kilometers from the Earth’s surface, aims to enable commercial applications such as allowing governmental entities and corporate customers to closely monitor transportation networks across air, land and sea to ensure normal and safe activity. For government regulators, telecommunications companies and satellite broadcasters, HawkEye 360’s system is being designed with the ability to monitor RF spectrum usage to help identify areas of interference, better understand spectrum deployment, and avoid negative impact to operations. The system could also help to detect and locate activated emergency beacons to improve response times in life-threatening situations.
“Beau brings global technical, strategic, and management experience in the remote data industry, further strengthening HawkEye 360’s existing team,” said Chief Executive Officer John Serafini. “His leadership and guidance will help the HawkEye 360 senior executive team continue to push the boundaries of small satellite and data analysis technology.”
