Unseenlabs, a world radio frequency data and solutions provider for Maritime Domain Awareness, is announcing the coming launch of BRO-9, the 9th satellite of the company’s constellation that is dedicated to the geolocation of all the vessels at sea.
BRO-9 will be launched in April of 2023 as part of the SpaceX Transporter-7 Mission aboard Falcon 9 from Vandenberg Space Force Base (VSFB) in California. This launch is a step forward for the development of Unseenlabs.
Unseenlabs provides solutions for maritime surveillance, based on exclusive RF 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.
“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.” — Jonathan Galic, CTO and co-founder of Unseenlabs
“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.” — Clément Galic, CEO and co-founder of Unseenlabs
