London, 15 November 2023.- UnseenLabs, a provider of radio frequency (RF) data and solutions for maritime domain awareness, announced the successful launch of its two satellites: BRO-10 and BRO-11. They were launched as part of SpaceX’s Transporter-9 mission via Exolaunch on the 11th of November from the Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. 

BRO-10 and BRO-11 are now in orbit at an altitude of 520 km. This has expanded the company’s constellation and intends to improve its capacity to provide RF data and solutions. The constellation now comprises 11 satellites, providing 11 simultaneous RF data collection points as a result of the monosatellite technology. 

With the new launch, UnseenLabs hope to accelerate their mission to offer comprehensive vehicle characterisation and precise geolocation. The expansion of the constellation aims to offer extended operational reach and cater to the needs of government users, NGOs, and private sector stakeholders such as insurers globally

“This milestone not only represents a technological breakthrough for UnseenLabs but also strengthens our position as the global leading provider of data and services for maritime surveillance,” said Clément Galic, CEO and co-founder of UnseenLabs. “With each satellite we add to our constellation, we’re not just collecting more data; we are expanding the depth and breadth of information we can deliver to the global maritime community.” 

UnseenLabs hope that the new capabilities introduced by these satellites will show the company’s commitment to safeguarding marine assets and environments from threats and unlawful activities.

In 2024, it’s a down month: the second lowest month of the year in terms of venture investment. Still, if the current flow of venture capital into the space industry continues at the rate of the first five months of the year, $7.6b of venture capital will have flowed into space-tech startups by the end of 2024.
