SeeByte, the global leader in creating smart software technology for unmanned systems and Soil Machine Dynamics Limited (SMD), world leading manufacturer of remote intervention equipment, have today announced their latest plans as part of their on-going technology partnership.

SeeByte and SMD plan to integrate a smart software tool for dynamic positioning and real-time monitoring of ROVs, based on integrating SeeByte’s CoPilot technology into SMD’s DVECSII control platform. This will be available on SMD’s latest generation ROV systems, the first of which is the Atom. SeeTrack CoPilot offers the industry’s most extensive range of operation modes such as station-keeping, cruise-control, survey-control, multibeam imaging, sonar track and mid-water DP. SMD’s ROVs, equipped with SeeTrack CoPilot, will boast the industry’s most advanced ROV control for survey purposes and unparalleled control performance for construction duties.

Andrew Hodgson, CEO of SMD commented: “Our customers in the drill support, survey and constructions sectors are facing increasingly challenging conditions and ever growing demand. We need to make our tools more accessible, more efficient and at the same time maintain the level of performance that is expected of us. I believe that our partnership with SeeByte is a key ingredient to help SMD meet the challenge. ”

Bob Black, SeeByte’s CEO stated: “This is another great example of SMD’s leadership and determination to provide their customers with added value. We are pleased to be working so closely with the team at SMD to tailor a solution that meets the requirements of their users.”

SeeTrack CoPilot for SMD ROVs will be commercially available as of May 2012.
