SeeByte has been awarded a contract by the Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) agency to provide a range of Command and Control (C2), autonomy and software design services to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) in support of all Royal Navy Mine Hunting Capability (MHC) and related programs.
The MoD and SeeByte will collaborate in the development and delivery of the C2 and Autonomy architectures that will operate across the MHC program to enable best of breed solutions with evergreening throughout the lifecycle of the program.
SeeByte will also provide support and maintenance services for software products currently fielded by UK government agencies. These include the company’s Multi Domain C2, Mission Level Autonomy and Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) solutions that are already fielded, operationally proven and in-service with the UK, US and NATO Navies.
The Royal Navy’s MHC program began in 2014 with the intention to deliver fully autonomous mine-hunting. SeeByte’s initial two-year contract has the option for DE&S to extend the term for two additional years and its new office in Bristol, UK will provide the ideal location to support the contract, offering job sustainability and further recruitment in both Edinburgh and Bristol.
