press release

SeeByte, the global leader in creating smart software technology for unmanned systems, and VideoRay the world leader in Inspection Class-ROV technology, have announced their decision to enter a partnership with the aim of developing solutions to improve value to their customers.

 

The decision follows the success of SeeByte’s SeeTrack CoPilot integration with the VideoRay micro ROV which was demonstrated at VideoRay’s VIPS 2011 conference last month in Florida. The demonstration, which featured Teledyne RDI Phased-Array DVL (Doppler Velocity Log) navigation, real-time monitoring and DP (Dynamic Positioning) control, supported both companies’ strategies to bring new piloting solutions to the Inspection Class ROV market. A spectator of the demo and attendee at the event, Dave Phillips, Undersheriff of St. Louis County Minnesota commented, “I was truly impressed by the ability to plan a survey and have the ROV follow it – it was done so easily. This advancement will dramatically shorten searches and increase confidence that areas have been cleared – definitely a valuable tool.”

 

Having witnessed the success of the SeeTrack CoPilot and VideoRay integration, CEO’s Bob Black and Scott Bentley formalised the companies’ agreement to develop a partnership that will continue to address industry requirements and add value to the VideoRay product line. Bentley, VideoRay CEO, commented: “This partnership will see two great brands working together to deliver customer-focused technology that will essentially enhance the user experience. SeeByte has shown that their software complements the practical use of our micro ROV’s and I look forward to building upon this relationship and announcing our new offering in early 2012.”

 

Bob Black of SeeByte also commented on the agreement: “VideoRay are the market leaders for micro ROV’s and SeeByte is delighted to be working with such a company to automate the piloting of their vehicles. I believe that we can add great value to the VideoRay product, and I think it is fair to say that this partnership is a fantastic example of how strategic commitment can pay dividends.”
