SeeByte, a creator of software for unmanned maritime systems, announced the launch of a new Multibeam Imaging Sonar Mosaic Tool for use with the company’s SeeTrackCoPilot software.

Users of SeeTrackCoPilot are now able to generate a multibeam imaging sonar forward-look mosaic. They can do this using a simple on/off button in the SeeTrackCoPilot interface. The tool can be used to quickly generate maps of the environment and improve ROV pilots’ situational awareness.

Dr. Mahesh Menon of Soil Machine Dynamics Ltd (SMD), a partnering company of SeeByte and leading manufacturer of Work Class ROVs, commented, “Our smart partnership with SeeByte has been great for our customers from the start, particularly with the introduction of SMD’s DVECS-S ROV control system, where CoPilot forms part of its core. With DVECS-S, pilots are able to engage autonomous functions on a ROV, such as auto cruise-control and object tracking using multi-beam sonar, which are beneficial in subsea operations, for example riser inspection, drill support and construction. We are very excited by the release of SeeByte’s sonar mosaic tool, which will further benefit our customers, enabling them to paint a map of their environment and use that map to navigate more effectively. There is currently no other capability like this in the marketplace.”

The Multibeam Imaging Sonar Mosaic Tool by SeeByte is now fully available to users of the SeeTrackCoPilot system, the world’s most advanced, easy-to-use, plug-and play software that makes piloting any ROV a much simpler task. SeeTrackCoPilot permits pilot controlled auto-transit and stop-and-hover, whilst providing automated sonar tracking and movement relative to a target.
