Greensea Systems, Inc., a software developer for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles, launched a new commercially packaged software suite for AUVs and ROVs based on the company's successful Open Software and Equipment Architecture, openSEA. The openSEA Suite, a collection of applications built on the proven openSEA core library, provide off-the-shelf modular software solutions for aided inertial navigation, vehicle control, mission management, device and sensor integration and operator interfaces. Based on a code base of tested technologies from over 200 deliveries, the openSEA Suite offers thousands of hours of at-sea experience on ROVs and AUVs of all sizes. Greensea also released a Software Development Kit to support integrators developing with the openSEA API or integrating with the openSEA Suite applications. These new products will be available for shipment starting in July 2013.

Greensea's primary business interest is control and navigation software for AUVs and ROVs. Greensea anchors its navigation and control technology with the Open Software and Equipment Architecture, openSEA. Greensea began development of openSEA in 2006 specifically as a modular programming environment for unmanned vehicles. This flexible and scalable architecture provides a development platform and a rich API upon which powerful independent applications may be developed with significantly reduced effort. openSEA is built on a robust error reporting and communication backbone and provides proven and tested software modules ranging from optimal control and Kalman filtering, to data management, and native support for hundreds of industry standard sensors and devices. This open architecture is unparalleled in both breadth and robustness and continues to serve as the core technology framework at Greensea.

Greensea's new product line, the openSEA Suite, is built on openSEA and can be deployed as independent applications or as linked modules to form a larger system capability. Applications within this suite include a sensor server (openDEVICE), a configurable aided inertial navigation system (openINS), a vehicle autopilot and control system (openCMD), and a mission management and planning system (openMNGR). All applications in the openSEA Suite have visual components that can be linked into Greensea's user interface framework, openVIZ. All modules provide defined client-side communication interfaces via serial or Ethernet and can communicate with each other via a private internal network enabling large interlinked systems. Greensea offers Software Development Kits for the openSEA Suite and openSEA API to promote customization, private labeling, and servicing.

Leveraging the openSEA Suite and the openSEA framework technologies, Greensea specializes in custom turnkey control and navigation systems. The modularity and flexibility of the technology allows the software to be easily scaled up to multi-vehicle systems with networked operators or scaled down to simple sensor and device interfaces, the company said. A significant advantage offered by this technology is the ability to easily deliver advanced control capabilities such as waypoint navigation, station keeping, dynamic positioning, route surveying, and target acquisition to inspection class systems and as retrofit upgrades to existing systems.
