Posted by Eric Haun

SeeByte, creator of smart software technology for unmanned
systems, and ATLAS ELEKTRONIK UK (AEUK), a specialist in delivery
of innovative maritime systems, have together successfully
integrated SeeByte's Neptune software onto AEUK's ARCIMS unmanned
surface vessel (USV) mission system.

ARCIMS is an USV specifically designed for multi-role
applications including MCM, ASW, Hydrography and security. ARCIMS
hosts the AEUK autonomy engine specifically developed for towing
mission systems and includes collision avoidance capabilities.
This agreement sees SeeByte and AEUK develop the next generation
of advanced autonomy for ARCIMS; SeeByte's smart software
integrated onto the ARCIMS USV to offer adaptive autonomy. This
allows vehicles to react and adapt their missions according to
feedback from their sensors. It also provides the capability to
link ARCIMS with other autonomous platforms to work
collaboratively on common goal-based missions.

Neptune is an adaptive planning tool for optimizing the execution
of UxV operations. It supports high level goal based mission
descriptions and allows the matching of mission requirements
against vehicle(s) capabilities. Neptune also includes behaviors
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 commented, "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 organizations 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."
