Edinburgh based marine business takes space in new Southampton Innovation Centre

Marine Robotic Innovation Centre

Edinburgh based SeeByte UK, the global leader in creating smart software for unmanned maritime systems, is expanding its offices and taking space in the new Marine Robotics Innovation Centre at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Southampton.

The centre, which will be officially opened later this month, will see marine businesses working alongside the NOC’s own autonomy and robotics team, sharing knowledge and the NOC’s extensive marine testing facilities.

Kevin Forshaw, Associate Director, Innovation and Enterprise at the NOC said, “It is really good to be welcoming SeeByte to the Marine Robotics Innovation Centre, being a leading player in the control of autonomous assets, and a partner to many of the companies we engage with. We ourselves have collaborated with SeeByte on several R&D projects to date, and having them on site will stimulate further collaboration in the future. Both organisations have key areas of expertise, that when combined, will help to bring about exciting new innovations for the sector.”

Bob Black, CEO at SeeByte, commented “Moving into the Innovation Centre at the NOC is a great opportunity for SeeByte. This expansion puts SeeByte in an ideal position to meet the requirements of our many clients in the South of England, and continue our on-going positive relationship with the NOC. We chose the Marine Robotics Innovation Centre because we are keen to work alongside like-minded companies.”
