SeeByte has confirmed that the company has successfully integrated its multi-domain SeeTrack v4 command and control (C2) software with Kongsberg’s HUGIN Superior Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). The HUGIN Superior AUV System is rated to 6000 metres and provides superior data quality and coverage coupled with a state-of-the-art navigation and positioning solution.
SeeByte’s SeeTrack v4 offers optimal goal-based planning and interoperability with other SeeTrack users. Its open architecture allows integration with different sonars, sensors or behaviours. Combining the software with Kongsberg’s advanced AUV results in enhanced operator situational awareness across single- or multi-vehicle operations with optimal planning, monitoring and post-mission analysis results on a single user interface.
SeeByte’s Business Development Manager for Defence, Robert Johnson, said: “This interoperability between autonomous systems is a great challenge in the underwater domain. We are delighted to work with Kongsberg to successfully integrate SeeTrack with the HUGIN Superior AUV and offer a best-of-breed solution for our customers.”
Vice President in Marine Robotics Sales at Kongsberg, Richard Mills, commented: “Our goal is to always improve the productivity and effectiveness of the HUGIN family of AUVs. Integrating HUGIN Superior with SeeTrack provides a more cohesive planning and supervision tool for multi-system operations.”
