HERNDON, Va., February 27, 2020 (Newswire.com) - 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 Martin Faga, former Director of the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO); Joan Dempsey, former Deputy Director of Intelligence at the Defense Intelligence Agency; and former Senator Joe Donnelly have joined its Advisory Board. Together, the new additions bring extensive experience working in defense and intelligence in both the government and private sectors.
“The addition of Marty, Joan, and Joe further deepens the breadth of experience and valuable knowledge on our HawkEye Advisory Board,” said John Serafini, Chief Executive Officer, HawkEye 360. “We could not ask for a more exceptional group of Advisors to lead HawkEye 360 in our mission to create a safer world through advanced RF analytics.”
During his time as President and Chief Executive Officer of The MITRE Corporation, Faga spent several years working on the integration of intelligence systems. He retired from MITRE in 2006. Prior, Faga worked extensively in the government sector. He served as Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Air Force for Space and as the Director of the NRO. From 2006 to 2009, he served on the President’s Intelligence and Advisory Board. Over the course of his career, Faga has received several honors and awards for his work from intelligence and government agencies.
“Hawkeye 360 is pursuing a new dimension in commercial space,” Faga said. “I am happy to have the opportunity to contribute to this fascinating and important new business.”
Dempsey joins HawkEye 360 with extensive experience in intelligence, security and business. Most recently, Dempsey held the role of Senior Partner and Executive Vice President for Booz Allen Hamilton’s defense and intelligence group. Before joining the private sector, Dempsey served more than 25 years with the federal government, which included two political appointments: Deputy Director of Central Intelligence for Community Management and Executive Director of the President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. Dempsey has also served as Deputy Director of Intelligence at the Defense Intelligence Agency.
“I look forward to working with HawkEye 360 as it develops its unique data analysis and collection capabilities using RF signals,” Dempsey said. “As the world grows more complex, defense and intelligence agencies must employ more sophisticated tools, such as those HawkEye 360 is building.”
