Bluefin AutoTracker

SeeByte and Bluefin Robotics announced acollaboration to provide enhanced software solutions for deepwater export pipeline inspections.

 

The collaboration is aimed at equipping Bluefin’s 21-inch AUV platforms with SeeTrack AutoTracker. SeeTrack AutoTracker was developed to enable AUVs to perform export pipeline inspections using on-board payload sensors to detect pipelines and automatically adjust the vehicle’s trajectory to optimally track the pipeline.



The combination of Bluefin’s vehicle stability and navigation capabilities, along with SeeTrack AutoTracker’s ability to accurately guide the AUV at a pre-defined offset from the pipeline, stands to provide an excellent data product for rapid and efficient pipeline inspection.  Using SeeByte’s SeeTrack AutoTracker software package on the Bluefin-21 AUV will further expand subsea inspection capabilities and provide valuable information to decision-makers.  



“This collaboration enables our customers to save operational costs by using enhanced data acquisition techniques for pipeline inspection.” commented Omer Poroy, Vice President of Business Development at Bluefin Robotics. “Offering SeeByte’s software with our vehicles provides a cost-effective and time-efficient solution to what can regularly be viewed as a complex task.”



“I am pleased to grow our relationship and experience in working with Bluefin Robotics and their vehicles.” said Ioseba Tena, SeeByte’s Sales Manager. “Having worked with Bluefin in the past in conjunction with our SeeTrack Military product, it is encouraging that we are now in a position to integrate SeeTrack AutoTracker with another of their vehicles, to offer customers an over-all solution for pipeline inspection.”
