The satellites lifted off aboard SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launch vehicle from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California on November 11. This achievement represents 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 ofits geographical location.
With BRO-10 and BRO-11 now on-orbit at an altitude of 520 kilometers, Unseenlabs’ satellite constellation expands, greatly amplifying the company’s capacity to provide RF data and solutions. Unseenlabs’ constellation is now comprised of 11 satellites, resulting in 11 simultaneous RF data collection points, thanks to the company’s smallsat technology.
The success of this launch propels Unseenlabs even further in the firm’s mission to offer comprehensive vessel characterization and precise geolocation, meeting the increasing demands of maritime surveillance across the globe.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 offers an extended operational reach and increased surveillance and caters 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 at a time when maritime activities continue to thrive.
