A Newfoundland and Labrador-based robotics company has landed a big contract to supply the Danish and Polish navies with minehunting sonar equipment.

Kraken Robotics Inc. signed the deal Tuesday with the Danish Ministry of Defence, Acquisition and Logistics Organization, worth approximately $36 million.

“The system that we’re going to be supplying to both the Danish and Polish navy is primarily our Katfish … which is an intelligent, towed underwater synthetic sonar system specifically designed for high-resolution imaging of the seabed,” Dave Shea, Kraken’s senior vice-president of engineering, told CBC Radio’s The Broadcast.
