ST. JOHN’S, NEWFOUNDLAND – OCTOBER 16, 2013 – Kraken Sonar Systems Inc. announced today the development of AquaPix® MINSAS – a next generation Miniature Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Sonar designed for operation to depths of 3000 metres. The system integrates the latest electronics, transducer arrays and signal processing software and is optimized for the demanding size, weight, power and cost constraints of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV), Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) and high speed towfish platforms. MINSAS uses a subset of Kraken’s award-winning AquaPix® INSAS transducer array, but has the addition of an innovative SAS gap filler transmitter that produces high resolution data in the nadir region. A lower frequency transmit element, unique to MINSAS, provides a SAS resolution gap fill directly under the platform. The transmitter and receiver elements are integrated into single monolithic arrays which are mounted close to the electronics module. The system also uses two rows of identical…
