SeeByte, the global leader of smart software solutions for uncrewed maritime systems (UMS) have successfully integrated their multi-domain, command and control software with Kongsberg’s HUGIN Superior Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV).
The HUGIN Superior AUV System is the most capable commercially available AUV. Rated to 6000 metres it generates a superior data set coupled with the best position solution possible.
SeeByte’s SeeTrack v4 offers optimal goal-based planning and interoperability with other SeeTrack users. Its Open Architecture allows integration with different sonars, sensors or behaviours.
Combing the two systems offers enhanced operator situational awareness across single or multi vehicle operations with optimal planning, monitoring and post mission analysis results on a single user interface.
SeeByte’s Business Development Manager for Defence, Robert Johnson, said
“This Interoperability between autonomous systems is a great challenge in the underwater domain. We are delighted to work with Kongsberg to successfully integrate SeeTrack with the HUGIN Superior AUV and offer a best-of-breed solution for our customers”.
Vice President in Marine Robotics Sales at Kongsberg, Richard Mills, added
“Our goal is to always improve the productivity and effectiveness of the HUGIN family of AUVs. Integrating HUGIN Superior with SeeTrack provides a more cohesive planning and supervision tool for multi-system operations.”
