SeeByte are Named Business Impact Award Winners

16 June 2011

SeeByte, the global leader in creating smart software technology for unmanned systems, has been named winner of the Business Impact Achieved award at the Impact Awards Ceremony hosted in Glasgow by PraxisUnico.

This award recognises projects that have made an outstanding business impact through successful knowledge transfer. SeeByte has been able to grow the outcome of a joint project with Heriot-Watt University into a first class business endeavour. In parallel SeeByte has generated its own intellectual property and has grown an extensive product portfolio. Amongst only twelve entries to be short-listed for an award, SeeByte was chosen by a judging panel led by Professor Sir Tim Wilson, retired Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hertfordshire.


Wilson commented on the awards: "The strength and diversity of the entries made the task of the panel extremely challenging. It is a privilege to be exposed to such a wealth of ideas and innovations.”


Stuart Genet, COO of SeeByte, attended the awards ceremony on the company’s behalf. Genet commented: "It was an honour for SeeByte to be awarded the Business Impact Achieved award. SeeByte has expanded its technology and market-space steadily over the past decade and it is encouraging to have our achievements recognised in this way. This award also demonstrates the value of our ongoing relationship with Heriot-Watt University.”


Having achieved ten consecutive years of revenue growth, SeeByte is considered a leading independent company in the development of smart software for unmanned underwater vehicles for both commercial and government clients globally. Spun out from Heriot-Watt University ten years ago, SeeByte now has offices in Edinburgh, San Diego and Seattle with flagship software SeeTrack used as the defacto technology for twelve of the world’s navies and a number of leading Oil and Gas companies.
