Unseenlabs is the European leader in satellite borne electromagnetic monitoring and intelligence. Through its space-proven proprietary technology, the company is able to track from space all maritime traffic – especially ships – that have switched off their identification system and that are unseen to maritime authorities or private companies. The main focus is therefore to detect dark vessels usually operating illegal activities such as illegal fishing, trafficking or piracy. Since 2019, the company has launched 3 satellites and can offer global coverage to its public and private clients.
This €20m Series B is the largest European spacetech fundraise in 2021 to date, and will enable the company to accelerate its commercial deployment through the hiring of new sales staff and the opening of new geographic hubs. It will also allow the company to further deploy its satellite constellation in order to increase data availability and offer new use cases to its clients.
