The threat of mine warfare is now more prominent than ever, and with 95% of the world’s commerce moving by sea, the security of our waters, coastlines and populations remains a key issue for maritime nations.

Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) teams traditionally using specialist divers and marine mammals to survey and clear potential underwater minefields. Missions were conducted by a series of assets from which data was gathered, manually assessed and pieced together before any further action could be taken. This resulted in time consuming processing putting front-line operators at risk. There has been a shift in recent times towards using unmanned assets such as AUVs and ROVs for such purposes. Navies are investing heavily in unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) to conduct Mine Countermeasure (MCM) missions in support of their EOD teams in challenging conditions. To date these vehicles have been primarily used to detect, classify, identify and localise mines.
SeeByte offers a range of software solutions to maximise the capabilities of UUVs for MCM missions. SeeByte’s smart software solution for the military provides users with the capability to rapidly plan a mission, gather data and integrate it into one layered image of the underwater space in a significantly reduced time with fewer errors or false alarms.
