SeeByte to extend USN UUV capabilities

4th June 2020 - 10:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


SeeByte has secured its first delivery order in the second option year of a five-year contract from the USN.

The UK-based company will provide engineering, technical support and training services for the MK18 UUV family of systems.

Training will seek to specifically enable the USN to continue training UUV operators in MCM.

The contracting agency is the Naval Surface Warfare Centre (NSWC) Indian Head EOD Technology Division.

Rob Carsley, operations manager at SeeByte, said: ‘We will provide a tailored training solution which will encompass the mission planning, mission monitoring and post-mission analysis features of our multi-vehicle co-operative autonomy product, Neptune.’

Carsley added: ‘The training will occur in a purely synthetic environment and the ability to run “what if” missions in simulation will increase awareness of Neptune capabilities and instil confidence in mission success, in addition to maintaining operator proficiency.’
