The company received a $2.2 million order for spares and sustainment of its KATFISH™ Mine Counter Measures (MCM) solution. Additionally, Kraken will supply $1.5 million worth of its AquaPix® synthetic aperture sonars (SAS), which will be used in conjunction with Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) for minehunting and the security of subsea infrastructure. The sonars will serve new naval customers, whose details remain confidential. The deliveries of these systems are scheduled for 2024.

About the system

The KATFISH (Kraken Active Towfish) system, developed by Kraken Robotics, is an advanced mine countermeasure (MCM) solution designed to provide high-speed, high-resolution seabed mapping and mine detection capabilities. This system employs Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) technology to deliver ultra-high resolution imagery and 3D bathymetry.

Key components of the KATFISH system include the towed SAS vehicle, the Tentacle Winch, and the Autonomous Launch and Recovery System (ALARS). The SAS technology enables the KATFISH to achieve a constant resolution of 3.3 cm x 3.0 cm across ranges up to 200 meters per side.

The KATFISH system can be integrated with both manned and unmanned vessels, providing flexible deployment options. It operates effectively in various sea states and environmental conditions, up to sea state 5 when combined with the SeaScout ALARS.
