Kraken Robotics Inc. is a marine technology company engaged in the design, development and marketing of advanced sensors for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles used in military and commercial applications. We are recognized as world leading innovators of Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS), a revolutionary underwater imaging technology that dramatically improves seabed surveys by providing ultra-high resolution imagery at superior coverage rates.
Kraken’s series of SAS products called AquaPix® leverages nearly two decades of R&D conducted by NATO’s Undersea Research Centre and millions of dollars in funding support from NATO government sponsors. AquaPix® offers comparable performance to existing high end military systems at a fraction of the cost.
Since 2017 we expanded from being solely an advanced sensor manufacturer to also the designing and manufacturing of complete systems, having introduced our KATFISH™ tethered underwater vehicle and recently the THUNDERFISH® autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV).
Our technology has been validated by leading laboratories and industry partners including Defence Research and Development Canada, U.S. Navy’s Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA); the UK Ministry of Defence; Elbit Systems; ATLAS Elektronik; Lockheed Martin; ECA Robotics and others. Kraken’s head office and main manufacturing facility is located in beautiful Newfoundland.
