Kraken Delivers Real Time Sonar Signal Processor to Australia’s Defence Science and Technology Organisation

ST. JOHN’S, NEWFOUNDLAND – 20 MAY 2014 – Kraken Sonar Systems Inc. announced today that Sea Acceptance Testing of its Embedded Real Time Synthetic Aperture Sonar (RTSAS) Signal Processor for Australia’s Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) was a success. DSTO is a national leader in safeguarding Australia by delivering valued scientific advice and innovative technology solutions for the country’s defence and national security. In 2013 DSTO procured an AquaPix® Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Sonar system from Kraken for research related to enhancing mine detection and neutralization techniques using Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). As their research advanced, DSTO scientists required a real-time sonar signal processing capability embedded directly onboard their REMUS 600 AUV. In real-time signal processing, the analyzed (input) and generated (output) samples can be processed continuously. DSTO is also developing automatic target recognition algorithms to identify naval mines. Moving the algorithms directly onboard the AUV eliminates the requirement for data…

Kraken Successfully Delivers AquaPix® Synthetic Aperture Sonar System to Defence Research and Development Canada

ST. JOHN’S, NEWFOUNDLAND – MAY 7, 2014 – Kraken Sonar Systems Inc., a leading marine technology company, announced today that it has successfully completed Sea Acceptance Testing of an AquaPix® Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Sonar (INSAS) system for Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC). DRDC is the national leader in defence and security science and technology. As an agency of Canada’s Department of National Defence (DND), DRDC provides DND, the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and other government departments as well as the public safety and national security communities the knowledge and technological advantage needed to defend and protect Canada’s interests at home and abroad. Kraken delivered a dual-sided AquaPix® INSAS2 system complete with an Embedded Real-Time INSAS signal processing engine and two DataPod™ Removable Data Storage Modules. The $500,000 system was integrated into DRDC’s Arctic Explorer class Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). AquaPix® INSAS2 system integrated into DRDC’s Arctic Explorer AUV. The…
