Herndon satellite company names chief strategy officer
Kari Bingen joins HawkEye 360
Herndon-based satellite company HawkEye 360 Inc. announced Wednesday it has hired Kari A. Bingen, a former deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence and security, as its chief strategy officer.
Bingen held her role with the Department of Defense from May 2017 through January 2020. In her new role, she will focus on space policy as well as the radio frequency (RF) data and analytics markets.
“HawkEye 360 is creating new possibilities with commercial RF capabilities and shaking up traditional business models for the better,” Bingen said in a statement. “Our national security will benefit from such commercial innovation.”
Bingen also previously served as the policy director for the House Armed Services Committee. She earned her bachelor’s degree in aeronautics and astronautics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
“Few people have the same depth of knowledge about space and intelligence policy as Kari Bingen,” HawkEye 360 CEO John Serafini said in a statement. “Both her technical expertise and prior service in the highest levels of the U.S. government make her a superb fit to guide our strategy.”
Founded in 2015, HawkEye 360 offers three main products including its signal mapping product RFGeo, its survey product RFMosaic and its analytics product, SEAker.
