Dynautics has developed a customised control system, based on its SPECTRE autopilot technology, for Subsea Craft’s next-generation maritime payload delivery platform VICTA.

In 2023, advanced maritime technology specialists Subsea Craft approached Dynautics to collaborate on VICTA’s vessel control system, with Subsea Craft stating that its payload delivery platform is “the world’s most advanced surface-submersible assault craft”.

As a result, Dynautics created a customised control system for Subsea Craft based on its commercially proven SPECTRE autopilot technology, enhancing it with the SSC team to provide a system that is adapted to the complex requirements of hybrid surface and subsurface operations. 

The teams continue to work closely together on a long-term contract for the advanced control system of this multi-domain vessel, which is capable of both surface and subsurface maritime manoeuvres.

Carl Reynaud, Dynautics Project Manager, said; “Controlling a prototype vessel such as Subsea Craft’s VICTA is the kind of challenge that the Dynautics team thrives on. 

“It requires a deep understanding of vessel systems, subsystems and vessel dynamics, the development of complex control algorithms and a strong collaborative effort.”
