Ocean Server Technology, SeeByte Perform Rapid Environmental Assessment

The assessment exercise was performed to show improvements in sonar and magnetic sensor data collection and in-stride and post-mission data analysis methods.

Ocean Server Technology and SeeByte joined together for a rapid environmental assessment exercise in Coronado, San Diego. Ocean Server's Iver2 AUVs were used as the payload platform, and the data retrieved were imported through SeeByte's SeeTrack Military software and later through the Navy's common operator interface for Navy explosive ordnance disposal, called SeaTrack COIN. In total, 37 AUV missions simulating battlefield data collection were performed. The companies present included EdgeTech, L-3 Klein and Marine Magnetics. There were also technical representatives from the U.S and Canada's navies.


The assessment exercise was performed to show improvements in sonar and magnetic sensor data collection and in-stride and post-mission data analysis methods. High-resolution images were captured in addition to validating recent sonar-platform integration projects. The navy observers were also able to view how new technology can be used in their applications.

Ocean Server's Bob Anderson said, "It is encouraging to see our collaboration with SeeByte producing such successful results. SeeByte's customers, including the U.S. Navy, can now benefit from the Iver2, a single man-portable AUV capable of carrying leading side-scan sonars and magnetic sensors, as the AUV is now fully compatible with SeeByte's software. Such instruments are vital when carrying out rapid environmental assessment work."
