Robotic and autonomous systems software solutions provider SeeByte has successfully delivered on-site training of their multi-domain mission management system, SeeTrack, to the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN).

The RNZN is using SeeTrack for in-field mission planning and post-mission analysis using its fleet of HII REMUS 300 and 100 vehicles.

By utilising SeeTrack, the RNZN Command team need only learn a single way of planning and monitoring missions regardless of the different manufacturers or types of vehicles, sensors, and effectors being employed.

“From the outset it was evident that the RNZN are extremely experienced REMUS operators.”

Managing multiple platforms and sensors at one time from SeeTrack’s common user interface potentially enables the RNZN to maximise the capabilities of its uncrewed systems, offering a level of interoperability while working together with other nations.

With over 26 navies worldwide using SeeTrack, the platform supports multinational interchangeability, encouraging fleets to share lessons learnt, and subsequently supporting doctrine refinement, and increasing confidence in autonomous systems.

SeeByte’s SeeTrack training is delivered to the RNZN in partnership with New Zealand Ocean Technology Ltd (NZOT).

“It has been a pleasure working with both the RNZN and NZOT over the past 2 weeks,” said SeeByte’s Capability Delivery Manager Sean Slee. “From the outset it was evident that the RNZN are extremely experienced REMUS operators.

“During the training they were keen to put the theoretical lessons into practice using real assets during the practical phase of training, extremely enthusiastic, and willing to learn.”
