Kraken Launches New Seabed Mapping Solution

Kraken Launches New Seabed Mapping Solution 2Kraken has released a new solution for seabed mapping called ‘SoundPix’.

SoundPix has been designed to work with Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) and conventional survey launches.

According to the company, the solution integrates Kraken’s real-time Synthetic Aperture Sonar signal processing with the data processing and mapping application, CARIS Onboard developed by CARIS of Fredericton, New Brunswick.

SoundPix is the world’s first Synthetic Aperture Sonar solution to enable near real time, ultra high resolution imaging and 3D mapping of the seafloor. The development of this new technology is expected to revolutionize the way in which bathymetry and imagery data is processed.

“Seafloor mapping is one of the oldest professions known to humankind,” said Karl Kenny, President and CEO of Kraken. “For thousands of years, mariners have been measuring the depths under their vessels. Today’s ocean surveying market is valued at over US$3 billion per year. Kraken’s customers and prospects have asked for a high resolution seabed mapping solution that leverages our Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) technology. With SoundPix, we’ve given it to them — hydrographic surveyors can now increase the quantity of seafloor data, significantly improve data quality and lower data acquisition costs — all in real time. We are extremely excited by the market potential for SoundPix.”
