SeeByte connects underwater autonomy and communications

12th October 2020 - 09:18 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

Increased real-time environmental awareness may allow robotic underwater vehicles to maximise their in-field persistence and operational effectiveness

UK-based SeeByte claims to have successfully linked autonomy and communications for unmanned maritime systems, as a ‘step change’ solution to maximise data transfer in communications-limited scenarios.

In a project called CARUSO, conducted under the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) Autonomy in Challenging Environments Phase 1, Seebyte integrated communication and sensing performance directly into the autonomy problem.

‘The need for AUVs to operate in highly complex, variable, and comms-limited environments requires effective autonomy and high performance underwater communications standards,’ SeeByte noted in an 8 October announcement.

‘Developing behaviours that can exploit an increased level of real-time environmental awareness will allow robots to maximise their in-field persistence and operational effectiveness.’
