Pioneering provider of intelligent technology to control uncrewed marine vessels Dynautics has developed a customised control system for Subsea Craft based on its commercially proven SPECTRE autopilot technology.
Dynautics was approached in 2023 by advanced maritime technology specialists Subsea Craft, to collaborate on the vessel control system for VICTA, the company’s next-generation maritime payload delivery platform, which according to Subsea Craft is the world’s most advanced surface-submersible assault craft.
Dynautics worked with the SSC team to provide a system that is adapted to the complex requirements of hybrid surface and subsurface operations. The teams continue to work closely together on a long-term contract for the advanced control system of this multi-domain vessel, which is capable of both surface and sub-surface maritime manoeuvres.
Speaking of the project Carl Reynaud, Dynautics project manager commented; “Controlling a prototype vessel such as Subsea Craft’s VICTA is the kind of challenge that the Dynautics team thrives on. It requires a deep understanding of vessel systems, subsystems and vessel dynamics, the development of complex control algorithms and a strong collaborative effort.”
