Unseenlabs to launch ninth satellite dedicated to the geolocation of vessels at sea
Unseenlabs, the first world radio frequency data and solutions provider for Maritime Domain Awareness, is announcing the coming launch of BRO-9, the 9th satellite of its constellation dedicated to the geolocation of all the vessels at sea. BRO-9 will be launched in April 2023 as part of Transporter-7 Mission aboard SpaceX’s launcher Falcon 9 from the Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. This launch is a step forward for the development of Unseenlabs.
Unseenlabs provides unmatched solutions for maritime surveillance, based on exclusive radio frequency data to allow the geolocation and characterization of any type of vessel anywhere around the globe. Many public and private customers (French Navy, NGOs, marine insurers, etc.) are already using these solutions.
Jonathan Galic, CTO and co-founder of Unseenlabs, states: “The launch of BRO-9 is an important milestone for Unseenlabs and our solutions’ ongoing development, the most advanced in the industry. Our one-of-a-kind technology allows our customers to make informed strategic decisions to protect their assets and preserve ocean biodiversity.”
Clément Galic, CEO and co-founder of Unseenlabs, adds: “BRO-9 will strengthen our capabilities to detect and track vessels — including uncooperative ones — and to fight against unlawful activities at sea (IUU fishing, smuggling, piracy, marine pollution, etc.). Unlike conventional maritime surveillance systems, our technology is limitless: at any time of the day or night, anywhere on the globe, and in any weather conditions, we can detect all the vessels navigating at sea, even those willing to go uncovered. We are convinced that our solutions offer significant added value to our customers, and contribute to creating safer oceans and seas for all.”
