Copilot RI Equipped Pro 4s use Dynamic Positioning Software From SEEBYTE for Mine Countermeasures

Pottstown,PA – VideoRay today announced that it has received an order for multiple Copilot RI Systems from the French Navy. These specialized systems, based on the VideoRay Pro 4 ROV with multi-beam sonar and Doppler velocity log positioning, are used to locate, re-acquire, and identify a range of underwater targets and explosive devices. SeeByte software makes this difficult operation easy, with minimal training compared to operations with less capable systems. The order was placed through NEOTEK, VideoRay’s authorized business partner in France.

VideoRays are the most popular underwater robot in the world, selling more units than all competing manufacturers. It dominates the market for homeland security operations and defense, with large fleets in the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, Norwegian Coast Guard, Saudi Border Guard, Taiwan Coast Guard, Korean Navy and the Dutch Navy, among others.

SeeByte, a subsidiary of Battelle, provides products and services to major government and commercial clients around the world. Battelle is a leader in maritime technologies, enabling rapid development and deployment of solutions for government and industry. CoPilot is the world’s most advanced, easy-to-use, plug-and play software, and makes piloting an ROV a much simpler task. CoPilot assists EOD teams in a variety of applications – from re-acquiring and identifying targets, to salvage missions – so EOD teams can easily navigate a small compact vehicle through dangerous environments.
