DRDC Combines SeeTrack Neptune with SeaRobotics USV

SeeByte, a creator of smart software for unmanned maritime systems, and SeaRobotics, a provider of autonomous and unmanned systems, have integrated SeeByte’s SeeTrack Neptune with SeaRobotics’ family of general purpose Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) as part of a Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) contract.

SeeTrack Neptune provides a payload control architecture and real time autonomy engine for unmanned systems to plan and execute well known patterns of behaviour that expedite and optimise single vehicle and multi-vehicle operations. In other words the operators plan what to do and SeeTrack Neptune decides how to do it.

The SeaRobotics USV-2600, 4 meter general purpose USV is a small but capable USV. It can be used for numerous applications and is able to accommodate specific designs. It is also highly manoeuvrable and is equipped with high efficiency hulls.

This integration will enable the USV to act as a relay to an Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) squad. This is an important step needed in order to enable over-the-horizon UUV operations.

SeeTrack Neptune can be run through SeeTrack Military, the leading technology used by Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Clearance Divers around the world to manage their off-board assets during dangerous and demanding missions.
