CoPilot Sonar by SeeByte

CoPilot Sonar by SeeByte for VideoRay Pro 4 ROVs incorporates the most advanced technology in software and imaging sonar to provide 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 sonar, click on it, and the VideoRay Pro 4 ROV will fly to the target autonomously.

Software features include:

• Manual, Station-Keeping, and ROV Cruise Modes

• Navigation uses BlueView sonar data to provide precise position updates

• Simple point-and-click PC interface to command ROV

• One click “Go to Target” automation

• One-click target tracking application launch

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



The CoPilot Sonar software package integrates seamlessly with the VideoRay Pro 4 Cockpit ROV control 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.
