July 2018 – SeeByte, the global leader in creating smart software for unmanned maritime systems, announce the renewal of all SeeTrack and Neptune licences currently operated by the Royal Navy’s Maritime Autonomous Systems Trials Team (MASTT). As part of the Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) Mine Countermeasures and Hydrographic Capability programme, SeeByte, working in conjunction with ATLAS ELEKTRONIK UK will be offering full support and maintenance for MASTT. The software is integrated into their AUV fleet to coordinate the vehicles during Mine Countermeasure (MCM) missions.
Additional specialist modules purchased for MASTT include an embedded Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) to optimise MCM missions and aid MILOC detection. These additional specialist modules will also be renewed with full support and maintenance.
SeeByte’s Technical Client Manager, Alastair Cormack said, “We are delighted to continue working with the Royal Navy’s MASTT and provide them with the latest version of our software tools, and up to date training to support their unmanned mine hunting missions”.
SeeByte’s SeeTrack provides a single integrated system to enable mission planning, vehicle monitoring and sensor post-mission analysis for all unmanned assets for survey operations. Run through SeeTrack, SeeByte’s Neptune provides payload control architecture, goal based mission planning, and real-time autonomy engine to plan and execute well known patterns of behaviour.
