SeeByte has successfully integrated SeeTrack Neptune with the OceanServer Iver2 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) for the use of Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC).
The SeeTrack Neptune software provided DRDC with a platform to design its own autonomous routines for the Iver2 vehicle and to perform collaborative multi-vehicle operations with other Allied nations. The capability was demonstrated in Halifax to the Royal Canadian Navy in early October.
On behalf of DRDC, Mae Seto commented: “The integration of the SeeTrack Neptune software with the OceanServer Iver2 platform demonstrates the flexibility of running this software on an AUV manufactured by a different vendor than in the past. This flexibility, and the inherent interoperability that follows, is a factor in the future of Navy-run AUV technology, and being able to demonstrate this to our Royal Canadian Navy customer was an achievement.”
