I would appreciate for the following to be posted:

SeeByte creates the world’s most advanced smart software for the latest generation of unmanned underwater vehicles, including autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) and remotely operated vehicles (ROV) for the military and offshore sectors.  SeeByte also work in the Renewable Energy market providing autonomous diagnostic tools. Beyond visualisation and automation, SeeByte systems extract information to create awareness, which can be used to reason intuitively and autonomously. These technology and deployment capabilities make SeeByte-enabled remote machines more productive, safe and reliable; operational performance is significantly enhanced at a reduced cost.

SeeByte’s Solutions in Action place total focus on understanding our customers’ requirements, whether that entails development of flexible systems, prototype creation or consultancy for bespoke solutions. By having dedicated delivery teams, SeeByte positions our engineers alongside the operators to gain a complete understanding of their needs and future technology required.

Two examples of Current SeeByte Solutions may be seen below.  Both are game-changing, requiring innovation and cutting-edge underwater robotic technology to provide a robust-repeatable solution. 

Confined Area Search (CAS) technology communicates, takes control and acts out automated ship hull and harbor inspection tasks.  SeeByte are developing automated control and sensor processing solutions showcased here with an example of their real-time 3-D reconstruction capabilities.   This technology can be utilised by the military for mine identification/verification and port and harbour security measures, as well as for pipeline inspections and floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) ship hull inspections for the offshore oil and gas industry.

Autonomous Inspection Vehicle (AIV) - Subsea 7 and SeeByte are working collaboratively to provide a new inspection and light intervention type of Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) that is capable of operating directly from a host facility. This approach, not currently available in the market, is game changing, as it allows unplanned inspections to be conducted quickly, easily and frequently without the need for a dedicated in-field support vessel.
