Kraken Introduces New Sonar

Kraken Robotics has developed new sonar system, the AquaPix MINSAS-240 Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS). 

Karl Kenny, Kraken’s president and CEO said, “For demanding subsea survey missions in mine countermeasures, infrastructure monitoring and oil & gas exploration; time is of the essence.  The sensor that gets the job done most effectively is one that combines ultra-high resolution imagery with an extremely high area coverage rate.  Kraken’s latest development, the AquaPix MINSAS-240 sensor, has been designed to advance the state-of-the-art in seabed mapping for both high-speed towed systems and Large Diameter Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (LDUUVs).”

The MINSAS-240 achieves the Area Coverage Rate (ACR) of 5.3 km2/h with 3’3 cm image resolution and 6’6 cm bathymetry resolution across the entire swath.

The superior length of the MINSAS-240 receiver array allows for full-aperture SAS processing even at tow speeds up to 20 knots without switching to a lower resolution imaging mode at high speed. The sensor is rated for operating depths of up to 6,000 meters, Kraken explained.
