Bluefin Robotics acquires SeeByte

8th October 2013 - 16:09 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Bluefin Robotics has enhanced its autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) software capabilities with the acquisition of SeeByte. The deal – the details of which have not been released - will see SeeByte become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bluefin.

SeeByte provides autonomous platform software designed to enhance the interpretation of data gathered by underwater sensors, vehicles and systems. Together the companies will offer these software solutions along with Bluefin’s AUVs, for the remotely-operated and unmanned vehicle markets.

David Kelly, president and CEO, Bluefin Robotics, said: ‘Bluefin and SeeByte have worked together for more than five years developing software and capabilities for Bluefin platforms like the Hovering AUV and Bluefin-21. Bringing these two companies together will allow us to bring integrated expertise in vehicle control, low-level vehicle to high-level mission autonomy, sensor processing, operator interface, and power subsystems to our customers.’
SeeByte will continue to provide open architecture, platform-agnostic software products and support for clients across all market sectors, especially in the defence sector and commercial oil and gas industry. The development team will continue to support and evolve products such as SeeTrack Military, SeeTrack AutoTracker and SeeTrack CoPilot.
Bob Black, CEO, SeeByte, added: ‘We are thrilled to join the Bluefin team. Together, our two companies will be able to address unmet market needs and drive a new level of capability in the maritime robotics market.’
