Unseenlabs has successfully launched two new satellites, BRO-10 and BRO-11, as part of the transporter-9 mission aboard SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket.
The company, a leader in radio frequency (RF) data and solutions for maritime domain awareness, launched the satellites via Exolaunch from the Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.
This achievement signifies a significant step forward in Unseenlabs’ ongoing mission to enhance maritime surveillance through its unique technology, capable of detecting the presence of any ship, whether cooperating or not, regardless of its geographical location.
With BRO-10 and BRO-11 now in orbit at an altitude of 520 kilometers, Unseenlabs’ satellite constellation expands, greatly amplifying its capacity to provide RF data and solutions.
The company’s constellation now comprises 11 satellites, resulting in 11 simultaneous RF data collection points thanks to its monosatellite technology. The success of this launch propels Unseenlabs even further in its mission to offer comprehensive vessel characterization and precise geolocation, meeting the increasing demands of maritime surveillance worldwide.
The new capabilities introduced by these satellites underscore Unseenlabs’ commitment to safeguarding marine assets and environments from threats and unlawful activities.
The expansion of the constellation thus offers an extended operational reach and increased surveillance and vessel characterization capabilities on a global scale, catering to the needs of government entities, NGOs, and private sector stakeholders such as insurers, worldwide.
This advancement significantly contributes to improving the global maritime landscape, particularly in a time when maritime activities continue to thrive.
“This milestone not only represents a technological breakthrough for Unseenlabs but also strengthens our position as the global leading provider of data and services for maritime surveillance. with each satellite we add to our constellation, we’re not just collecting more data; we are expanding the depth and breadth of information we can deliver to the global maritime community,” stated Clément Galic, CEO and Co-Founder of Unseenlabs. “With this successful launch, unseenlabs continues its robust growth trajectory, both in France and internationally, solidifying its position as the global leader in radio frequency signal detection from space.”
