Ibadan, 18 April 2023. – Unseenlabs has announced the successful launch of BRO-9, its ninth satellite, having launched the eighth satellite back in January. The satellite launched into space as part of SpaceX’s Transporter-7 mission from the Vandenberg space force base in California. Furthermore, the Company made contact with the satellite a few hours after the launch.
The Company provides 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.
Since 2019, Unseenlabs has launched in orbit nine satellites to provide radio frequency (RF) data and solutions to its customers for the geolocation and characterization of ships at sea. By extending its satellite constellation, Unseenlabs will be able to increase its RF data collection capabilities and continue improving its solutions.
Speaking on the successful launch, Jonathan Galic, CTO & cofounder of Unseenlabs, stated, “We were happy to successfully partner with Exolaunch and SpaceX for this launch. BRO-9 is operational, and we look forward to using its capabilities to continue upgrading our solutions for our customers.”
Likewise, Clément Galic, the Company’s CEO & cofounder, said, “We are glad that the launch was a success. It is another step forward in the development of our constellation and, more broadly, of Unseenlabs. It will allow us to meet the growing demand for RF data and solutions.” The CEO also added that the satellite would help the Company develop its capabilities to detect and track vessels and fight against unlawful activities at sea.
