Kraken Robotics Systems has been awarded a contract valued at $1 million with the Government of Canada for the ThunderFish 300 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV).

Kraken expects to deliver the ThunderFish 300 to its test partner, Defense Research and Development Canada (DRDC), in Halifax in Q2 2019.

Karl Kenny, Kraken’s president and CEO said, “We are very pleased to be contracted to deliver our ThunderFish AUV to DRDC. This represents a pre-commercial R&D sale of ThunderFish. We are continuing development of the ThunderFish AUV platform to bring additional features to the market including the integration of our Multispectral SAS and 3D laser scanner sensors.”

The ThunderFish AUV is a marine robot designed for ultra high-resolution seabed imaging and mapping applications. It can be used for a wide range of oceanographic and military tasks including underwater surveys, environmental monitoring, habitat mapping, marine archaeology, inspection of submerged structures, searching for downed aircraft and naval mine countermeasures.
