VideoRay Sonar CoPilot by SeeByte

Sonar CoPilot by SeeByte for VideoRay Pro 4 ROVs incorporates the most advanced technology in software and imaging sonar target tracking and automation.  When you identify a sonar target, the computer controls the thrusters to maneuver to within visual range, as you simply play out tether as needed.  This solution simply takes a VideoRay Pro 4 ROV system with a BlueView P900 series imaging sonar and adds software which allows click-and-go auto piloting. Identify a target with the BlueView P900-130 sonar (recommended field of view is 130°), click on the sonar target, and the VideoRay Pro 4 ROV will fly to the target autonomously.

Software features include:

• One click “Go to Target” automation.

• One-click target tracking application launch.

• Easy target selection and tracking - user defined target size parameters.

• Streaming target relative velocity data.

The VideoRay Sonar CoPilot by SeeByte software package integrates seamlessly with the VideoRay Pro 4 Cockpit ROV control software as well as the required BlueView ProViewer Plus software.  Required hardware includes a VideoRay Pro 4 ROV system with the latest PC upgrades and a BlueView P900 series imaging sonar with VideoRay integration kit.  A dual monitor set-up and 130° horizontal field of view on the sonar is recommended.
