Soil Machine Dynamics & Seebyte announce successful integration of SeeTrack CoPilot to SMD's work-class ROV system.

The integration and trials, which took place in Fort William, Scotland, in mid-January, saw SeeByte’s SeeTrack CoPilot Software system for dynamic positioning and real-time monitoring of work class ROVs, successfully carry out a number of survey missions using the software’s easy to use, point-and-click interface. The software provides advanced features such as flight-modes, a map that moves in real-time to aid piloting, chart overlay and the ability to track specific structures within the water column, which will be of great benefit to operations.

“SMD’s work class ROVs are renowned for their reliability and flexibility in a range of duties” commented Ioseba Tena, Sales Manager at SeeByte. “By pairing the SMD work class ROVs with SeeTrack CoPilot, the vehicle is now even better equipped to carry out successful surveys, field development and pre & post lay operations, amongst a range of other applications. We are pleased to be moving successfully forward in our partnership with SMD.”

Mahesh Menon, R&D Manager at SMD commented; “I am very pleased to see the positive outcome as a result of the hard work done by both SMD and SeeByte in terms of the integration of SeeTrack CoPilot with our work-class ROV systems, and subsequent trials. We are excited about introducing a range of features that make this a system like no other, offering countless benefits to our customers. I am also really excited about the technology roadmap that we have set out to move the partnership forward.”

SMD is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of remote intervention equipment, working in hazardous environments worldwide. The product portfolio includes the world’s largest range of subsea remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) such as work-class and specialist trenching vehicles; as well as tidal generation, subsea installation devices and submerged mining equipment.
