SeeByte integrates Neptune with ARCIMS
SeeByte's Neptune software has been successfully integrated with Atlas Elektronik UK's (AEUK) ARCIMS unmanned surface vessel (USV) mission system, SeeByte announced on 27 February.
ARCIMS is designed for multi-role applications including mine countermeasure missions, anti-submarine warfare, hydrography and security. SeeByte's software will be integrated into the ARCIMS mission system to improve the USV's autonomous capabilities, to allow the vehicle to react and adapt to its mission according to feedback from onboard sensors. The software will also provide the capability to link ARCIMS with other autonomous platforms to work collaboratively on common goal-based missions.
Neptune is an adaptive planning tool. It supports high level goal based mission descriptions and includes behaviours capable of adapting the mission based on changes in the environment, assets and mission objectives; benefits which will be useful for future unmanned operations.
Dave Motson at AEUK said: 'AEUK is always looking for ways to bring to market technology that is ahead of the game. Autonomy is an area that is currently taking off with previously unseen capabilities frequently being developed.
'Our partnership with SeeByte brings together the best of both organisations to ensure we retain our market lead. ARCIMS integrated with Neptune really does provide autonomy capabilities that will open up a range of new possibilities for end-users.'
