SeeByte has launched an Area Breakdown Tool (ABT) to assist unmanned maritime system (UMS) operators in planning complex mine countermeasure (MCM) missions, the company announced on 31 May.

SeeByte’s ABT allows operators to divide large operational areas into smaller sections that can then be assigned to different unmanned systems. These areas can be customised for the platform type, the mission duration or the number of vehicles in the squad. It will then aid the operator to efficiently prepare a set of sortie plans and quickly evaluate alternatives for a complex mission involving multiple UMS.

The operating platform for the ABT, SeeTrack v4, allows users to create operational areas such as Q-routes and polygons, potentially covering a large expanse of ocean.

SeeTrack also supports the import of routes and operational areas through common formats such as 'additional military layers'. SeeByte’s Neptune can automatically optimise the output from ABT to minimise the sortie duration and maximise tasking across the entire squad.
