Seatronics, an Acteon company with global expertise in marine electronic and subsea survey rentals, are happy to announce that Great Eastern Group (GEG) have taken delivery of two Predator inspection-class ROV systems integrated with SeeByte’s SeeTrack CoPilot. The Seatronics and SeeByte collaboration on the Predator offers a complete comprehensive system for ROV inspections.
Great Eastern Group, specialists in global marine engineering, offshore power and subsea telecommunication fibre optic construction will use the Predators to provide enhanced capabilities for their survey and inspection tasks. The Predator is built for reliability and performance; some of it’s components are manufactured using nano-technology and the highest specification materials found in any Inspection-class ROV today. SeeTrack CoPilot will allow operators to automate inspection tasks using point-and-click software to fly the ROV to any given point. The software allows pilots to simply click on an area they would like to inspect on the CoPilot interface and the ROV is able to accurately fly autonomously to the location.
Bruce Morris, GEG Director of Engineering & Operations, commented “We are delighted to be able to offer this marine environment functionality to our customers. We are always looking for ways to deliver quicker, better and more accurate results to our customers and the Predator system does exactly that”.
SeeTrack CoPilot is the world’s most advanced, easy-to-use, plug-and play software that makes piloting any ROV a much simpler task. SeeTrack CoPilot permits pilot controlled auto-transit and stop-and-hover, whilst providing automated sonar tracking and movement relative to a target.
The Predator, a 300m depth-rated inspection class ROV has been developed to meet the demanding markets for rugged and reliable underwater viewing systems. It offers superb in-water power and stability capabilities in a 2-man portable package.
