Kraken Enters Strategic Alliance with ThayerMahan

Kraken Robotics’ wholly-owned subsidiary, Kraken Robotic Systems has entered into a strategic alliance agreement with ThayerMahan, a US-based systems integrator specializing in maritime autonomous systems.

Both companies are collaborating to deliver next generation underwater sensors and robotics for military, law enforcement, port and maritime security and environmental monitoring applications.

ThayerMahan was founded by retired U.S. Navy Vice Admiral Mike Connor, who also serves on Kraken’s Board of Directors. Vice Admiral Connor led the US Navy’s submarine force into robotic undersea systems, achieving key milestones including the first operational deployment and recovery of an unmanned underwater vehicle from a submarine.

“The military operates in an increasingly complex and challenging technology environment,” said Vice Admiral Connor. “At ThayerMahan, it is our mission to integrate and deploy the latest sensors, robotics and machine learning technology as affordable and innovative solutions. We believe it is crucial to work with partners who are as committed and passionate about what they do, as we are. We feel that the Kraken has developed technology that is driving innovation in our industry and significantly benefits our mutual customers.”

“The strategic alliance with ThayerMahan enables us to expand our underwater technology into new applications,” said Karl Kenny, Kraken’s president and CEO. “We are thrilled that this relationship can accelerate our access to new US Navy opportunities such as the Advanced Naval Technology Exercise 2018.”
