Kraken Robotics’ wholly-owned subsidiary, Kraken Robotic Systems, has secured a repeat contract by an unnamed military customer for its AquaPix miniature synthetic aperture sonar system.
The contract is valued at over CAD 400,000, the company said.
Delivery of the sonar system is expected in Q2, 2018.
Karl Kenny, Kraken’s president and CEO said, “We are very pleased with this repeat contract award. AquaPix is an industry-leading sonar system providing military grade technology that enables superior 3D seabed imaging and faster data processing at a lower cost than competing sonars. With militaries’ increasing focus on autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), Kraken is well-positioned in this high-priority, high-potential growth area. We thank our customer for their ongoing support and confidence in our technology and products.”
AquaPix is designed for operation on AUVs and towed platforms.
