SeeByte Awarded Contract from DE&S to Provide C2 and Autonomy for Royal Navy MHC
SeeByte has been awarded a contract by Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) agency to provide a range of command and control, autonomy and software design services to the UK Ministry of Defense in support of all Mine Hunting Capability (MHC) and related programs.
The UK Ministry of Defense and SeeByte will collaborate in the development and delivery of the Command and Control (C2) and Autonomy architectures that will operate across the MHC program to enable best of breed solutions with evergreening throughout the lifecycle of the program.
SeeByte will also provide support and maintenance services for software products currently fielded by UK government agencies. These include their Multi Domain C2, Mission Level Autonomy and Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) solutions that are already fielded, operationally proven and in-service with the UK, US and NATO Navies.
The RN’s MHC program began in 2014 with the intention to deliver fully autonomous mine-hunting. SeeByte’s initial two-year contract has the option for DE&S to extend the term for two additional years and their new office in Bristol will provide the ideal location to support the contract, offering job sustainability and further recruitment in both Edinburgh and Bristol.
