CEO Comments

Karl Kenny, Kraken president and CEO said, “This is the third AquaPix contract from this customer. The reason this customer has once again selected AquaPix is because it is the industry leading sonar system, which provides military grade technology enabling superior 3D seabed imaging, faster data processing and a lower cost than competing sonars. With the increasing focus on AUV technology, Kraken’s line of underwater sensors are well-positioned in this high-priority, high-potential growth area. We thank our customer for their ongoing confidence in our technology and products.”

AquaPix is designed for operation on autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), manned and unmanned surface vessels and towed platforms.

Delivery is expected in Q4, 2018.
