ST. JOHN’S — Kraken Robotics Inc., an advanced manufacturer of sonar technologies, announces new contracts valued at more than $1.6 million for its AquaPix® Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS). Deliveries will occur in 2022. Due to confidentiality reasons the customers cannot be named.
Kraken’s AquaPix® is an off the shelf, configurable SAS that replaces high end sidescan systems at an alternative price, while delivering a reportedly higher resolution, range, and area coverage rates (ACR). The range, resolution and associated higher ACR of SAS over traditional Side Scan Sonar systems reportedly expand the capabilities of naval, scientific, and commercial applications. Kraken’s AquaPix® is capable of 2 cm x 2 cm Ultra High-Definition SAS imaging at long ranges. AquaPix® is trying to bring this capability to the increasingly popular small, man-portable vehicle class. AquaPix® is modular and has been integrated and deployed on over 20 different underwater vehicle platforms from shallow water to full ocean depth.
Kraken Robotics Inc. is a marine technology company dedicated to the production and sale of software-centric sensors, subsea batteries, and underwater robotic systems.
