Kraken Robotics Inc., Canada’s Ocean Company, is pleased to announce contracts from two customers totaling $1.1 million for its AquaPix® Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS). Due to confidentiality reasons the customers cannot be named but deliveries will go to the UK and Singapore for integration onto small man portable Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). This represents Kraken’s first sale into Singapore and is reflective of our growing value proposition in the defense market of providing leading technologies at commercially competitive prices.
Kraken’s AquaPix® is an off the shelf, configurable SAS that replaces high end sidescan systems at an affordable price, while delivering higher resolution, range, and area coverage rates (ACR). The increased range, resolution and associated higher ACR of SAS over traditional Side Scan Sonar systems significantly expand the capabilities of naval, scientific, and commercial applications. Kraken’s AquaPix® is capable of 2 cm x 2 cm Ultra High-Definition SAS imaging at long ranges. AquaPix® is uniquely positioned within the industry to bring this capability to the increasingly popular small, man-portable vehicle class. AquaPix® is modular and has been integrated and deployed on over 20 different underwater vehicle platforms from shallow water to full ocean depth. Kraken’s SAS is modular and versatile, demonstrated by being one of only two companies in the world that has sold and integrated SAS into small man portable vehicles, towed systems and deep water vehicles.
