Kraken Sonar Systems has been awarded a contract valued at approximately C$3 million by Ocean Infinity.
Kraken will supply and integrate its AquaPix (Miniature Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Sonar and Real-Time SAS Signal Processor) solution onboard eight of Ocean Infinity’s HUGIN autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV).
Delivery of the systems is planned to start during the fourth quarter of 2017.
Karl Kenny, Kraken’s president and CEO, said: “Ocean Infinity has the world’s most advanced unmanned maritime technology for seabed mapping, survey and search. Adding AquaPix sonar to their fleet will enable them to simultaneously produce crisp imagery and detailed 3D digital terrain maps of seafloor topography.
“The system will be used worldwide to collect high-resolution seabed data in water depths up to 6,000 meters and to cover huge swaths of seabed quickly and accurately. We are very pleased to equip their HUGIN AUVs with our AquaPix sonar system and appreciate their confidence in our technology and products.”
