SeeTrack, Neptune Software Licences Renewed for Royal Navy MASTT AUV Fleet
EDINBURGH, U.K. — SeeByte has renewed all SeeTrack and Neptune licences currently operated by the U.K. Royal Navy’s Maritime Autonomous Systems Trials Team (MASTT), the company said in a July 17 release.
As part of the Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) Mine Countermeasures and Hydrographic Capability program, SeeByte, working in conjunction with Atlas Elektronik UK, will be offering full support and maintenance for MASTT. The software is integrated into their autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) fleet to coordinate the vehicles during mine countermeasures (MCM) missions.
Additional specialist modules purchased for MASTT include an embedded Automatic Target Recognition to optimize MCM missions and aid detection. These additional specialist modules will also be renewed with full support and maintenance.
“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,” said Alastair Cormack, SeeByte’s technical client manager.
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 behavior.
