Kraken AquaPix® Synthetic Aperture Sonar for US Contractor

Kraken Robotics Inc., Canada’s Ocean Company, is pleased to announce new contracts valued at $2.0 million for its 6000-meter rated AquaPix® Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) from a US defense contractor for deployment on Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) built by the customer. Due to confidentiality reasons the customer cannot be named. Deliveries are expected to occur in the second half of this year.

Kraken’s AquaPix® is an off the shelf, configurable SAS that replaces high end sidescan systems at an affordable price, while delivering higher resolution, range, and area coverage rates (ACR). The increased range, resolution and associated higher ACR of SAS over traditional Side Scan Sonar systems significantly 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 modular and has been integrated and deployed on over 20 different underwater vehicle platforms from shallow water to full ocean depth.
