CDL and SeeByte: Compatible ROV Technology

press release
Tuesday, November 08, 2011

SeeByte, the global leader in creating smart software technology for unmanned systems, is pleased to announce its compatibility with CDL Inertial Engineering of Aberdeen. SeeByte’s SeeTrack CoPilot system and CDL’s TOGS/NAV system are now fully compatible.

 

This combination has created a truly efficient navigation platform, capable of delivering Dynamic Positioning (DP) for work-class Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) in challenging subsea environments. Colin Crichton, CEO at CDL, stated: “We are pleased to be in a position to offer this functionality to our customers. Not only will the compatibility with SeeTrack CoPilot improve current operations within offshore services, it will lead the way for mid-water dynamic positioning, which is currently a problem area.”

 

Bob Black of SeeByte commented: “Our software will provide CDL with a superb new capability for their established integrated navigation solutions for ROV’s and AUVs. We look forward to supporting them as they continue to deliver high value solutions to their customers.”

 

SeeTrack CoPilot offers easy-to-use plug-and play software that makes piloting the ROV a much simpler task. The software enables semiautonomous, pre-programmed ROV sorties to be planned and executed, with current surge and tether effects no longer posing a challenge. Through a simple point and click intuitive and easy to use interface, SeeTrack CoPilot permits dynamic positioning such as Station-Keeping, Cruise-Control, Survey-Control and Sonar-Track. This allows pilot controlled auto transit and stop-and-hover applications whilst providing automated sonar tracking and movement relative to a target.
