SeeByte Announces Sale to the Royal Netherlands Navy

press release
Friday, April 20, 2012

SeeByte, the global leader in creating smart software technology for unmanned systems, has announced that it will provide the Royal Netherlands Navy with twenty new licences of SeeTrack Military.

 

This significant purchase has come after the Royal Netherlands Navy’s successful use of SeeTrack Military over the past six years. The licences will be deployed to the Diving and Explosive Ordnance Disposal Group in Den Helder, the BE/NL Minewarfare school Eguermin in Ostend, Belgium and to researchers at the Netherland’s TNO.

 

Ioseba Tena, Sales Manager at SeeByte commented: “The Royal Netherlands Navy has always been one of our biggest customers and I’m exceptionally pleased that SeeByte can offer them the software solutions needed to ensure safe and efficient mission planning and execution. We are keen to work together with the Netherlands MOD to ensure all of their requirements are met by our software.”

 

Lt Cdr Guido Fretz, representative of the Netherlands Ministry of Defence, commented “Our navy has used SeeTrack Military for many years now to assist with mission planning and post processing of data from our REMUS AUVs and our Shark Navigators. We believe that it is a very effective package available to us to help run our MCM and harbour protection missions, and train the operators. SeeByte also offers first rate support, which is one of the reasons why we have chosen to accompany our licence purchase with additional support and maintenance for the next five years.”  

 

SeeByte’s SeeTrack Military software is an open-architecture platform solution for rapid on-site analysis and data fusion that can be easily adapted for specific user needs.  Developed as a mission-planning, monitoring and post-processing tool, this software technology has been successfully deployed on numerous surveys, military and security operations and scientific experiments. It is also easily integrated to allow data export into other tactical software, like MEDAL or MINTACS, as was proven with the COIN solution used by the U.S. Navy's Explosive Ordnance Disposal teams.
