SeeByte provides clients in the maritime, military and oil and gas sectors with smart software solutions to enhance the capabilities of underwater sensors, vehicles and systems. SeeByte came to be in 2002 in the Oceans Lab at Heriot-Watt University, and has since grown to become a leader in advanced software solutions with a global market presence. In October 2013 SeeByte was acquired by Battelle Memorial Institute, enabling rapid development and deployment of solutions for government and commercial clients around the world.
SeeByte’s SeeTrack software, which enables fast and efficient mission-planning, monitoring and post-mission analysis, has been chosen by more than 20 of the world’s navies to optimize unmanned underwater vehicle operations. SeeByte’s software aims to provide UMS operators with high quality data by generating a single integrated picture of events from multiple sensors and platforms. Run through SeeTrack, Neptune forms SeeByte’s autonomy engine. Neptune is an adaptive planning tool for optimizing the execution of AUV operations. It supports high-level goal-based mission descriptions and allows the matching of mission requirements against vehicle capabilities. Neptune also includes behaviors capable of adapting the mission based on changes in the environment, assets and mission objectives.
