VideoRay and its partners have shipped the first implementation of VideoRay CoPilot by SeeByte software on a platform consisting of the VideoRay Pro 4 underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), BlueView P900 series imaging Sonar, and Teledyne RDI Explorer Doppler Velocity Log (DVL). The first release of the SeeByte solution on a VideoRay ROV follows several months of software and hardware development by VideoRay and SeeByte. SeeByte adapted its unique navigation software to VideoRay’s ROV control system and hydrodynamics. VideoRay worked closely with Teledyne RDI to adapt the Explorer DVL to a smaller, more hydrodynamic housing well suited to the powerful yet ultra-portable VideoRay Pro 4. BlueView contributed their industry-leading multibeam sonar, with ProViewer Plus advanced target tracking software by SeeByte.
