Kraken Robotics is a marine technology company that specializes in advanced sonar and laser systems, as well as subsea power solutions for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) for military and commercial applications. We are the world’s leading innovators of Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS), a revolutionary underwater imaging technology that provides ultra-high-resolution imagery at superior coverage rates, vastly improving seabed surveys.
AquaPix®, Kraken’s SAS product line, provides comparable performance to existing high-end military systems at a fraction of the cost. As a result, Kraken can provide the highest quality at the lowest cost per pixel on the market.
Kraken now offers subsea Robotics as a Service (RaaS) capabilities such as geophysical surveys, sonar surveys, and 3D laser inspections after acquiring PanGeo Subsea in 2021. Kraken’s highly skilled team manages the project’s planning, subsea surveys, and data delivery to the customer.
Launch and recovery is one of the highest risk operations undertaken in the application of towed or autonomous underwater vehicles. The primary function of an autonomous launch and recovery system is to enable an unmanned vehicle and its payloads to be brought aboard a host ship safely, efficiently, and without damage.
Kraken’s Autonomous Launch and Recovery System (ALARS) and intelligent Tentacle Winch™ are is designed for modular integration onto manned and unmanned surface vessels, with rapid mobilization on vessels of opportunity. They increase the operational envelope while removing humans out of harm’s way through a fully unmanned launch and recovery system.
Kraken Robotics Systems are located in Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Toronto.
