Unseenlabs successfully has launched their eighth satellite since 2019, one dedicated to the geolocation of vessels at sea from space.
BRO-8 was launched with Exolaunch as part of SpaceX’s Transporter-6 Mission from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Communication with the satellite was successfully established a few hours after launch.
The Unseenlabs constellation is designed to provide customers with reliable and frequent radio frequency data for rapid detection and monitoring of activities at sea, regardless of the time of day, or weather conditions. This capacity is ideally suited for applications such as national security, insurance and marine area protection.
To date, Unseenlabs has built and launched the largest fleet of independent satellites dedicated to the detection of radio frequency signals. The technology created by the company helps its customers to gain the most up-to-date analysis on maritime traffic for their area of interest.
During 2023, the French SME plans to expand the team based at its headquarters in Rennes, France. Additionally, the company plans to increase the number of spacecraft to reach a constellation of 20 to 25 independent satellites, dedicated to the geolocation of vessel at sea from space.
“The new satellites add essential capacities to the Unseenlabs constellation: it means more solutions and deeper analysis for our customers. If you need to know what is happening in your areas of interest, Unseenlabs provides you with an efficient solution for an exhaustive view of maritime traffic through maritime surveillance,” said Clément Galic, CEO and co-founder of Unseenlabs.
