The threat of mine warfare is now more prominent than ever, and with 95% of the world’s commerce moving by sea, the security of our waters, coastlines and populations remains a key issue for maritime nations.
Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) teams traditionally using specialist divers and marine mammals to survey and clear potential underwater minefields. Missions were conducted by a series of assets from which data was gathered, manually assessed and pieced together before any further action could be taken. This resulted in time consuming processing putting front-line operators at risk. There has been a shift in recent times towards using unmanned assets such as AUVs and ROVs for such purposes. Navies are investing heavily in unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) to conduct Mine Countermeasure (MCM) missions in support of their EOD teams in challenging conditions. To date these vehicles have been primarily used to detect, classify, identify and localise mines.
SeeByte offers a range of software solutions to maximise the capabilities of UUVs for MCM missions. SeeByte’s smart software solution for the military provides users with the capability to rapidly plan a mission, gather data and integrate it into one layered image of the underwater space in a significantly reduced time with fewer errors or false alarms.
SeeTrack is the leading technology used by Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) teams around the world, to achieve success in managing their off-board assets during dangerous and demanding missions.
CoPilot, designed as a tool to make piloting an ROV an easier task, allows operators to re-acquire and identify a target at the click of a mouse.
Neptune allows simultaneous multi-vehicle collaboration, providing a payload control architecture, goal based mission planning, and real-time autonomy engine for Unmanned Maritime Systems (UMS).
Support & Training
Part of SeeByte’s success is focussed on the ability to properly train users to utilise the technology to its greatest capacity.
