As part of the contract, Kraken is set to deliver its advanced KATFISH™ high-speed minehunting system, alongside a range of support and sustainment features such as training, spare parts, and operational backing.

As per the terms of this acquisition agreement, Kraken is scheduled to dispatch its KATFISH towed Synthetic Aperture Sonar, the Tentacle® Winch, and the Autonomous Launch and Recovery System (ALARS) in the second quarter of 2023.

The equipment will be installed on a vessel chosen by the client, marking Kraken’s debut KATFISH system sale in the Asia-Pacific region and extending the success story of KATFISH deliveries to various NATO navies.

The contract's award follows a successful KATFISH™ demonstration for the client in the first quarter of this year, where Kraken, in collaboration with a local survey firm, undertook a 200 km seabed survey, generating real-time ultra-high-resolution imagery and bathymetry of the seafloor along coastal waters.
