Kraken Robotics Inc., Canada’s Ocean Company, is pleased to announce that under a contract with Danish Ministry of Defence, Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) it has delivered mine-hunting sonar equipment to the Royal Danish Navy. This includes Kraken’s KATFISH™ towed Synthetic Aperture Sonar, Tentacle® Winch and Autonomous Launch and Recovery System (ALARS). Kraken’s minehunting systems are being integrated onboard the Royal Danish Navy’s optionally unmanned surface vessels. Kraken’s system acceptance tests with DALO and MCM Denmark are ongoing and will be completed in the second half of this year, following which MCM Denmark’s upgraded capabilities are expected to be deployed operationally in early 2023.
Karl Kenny, Kraken President and CEO noted: “We are very pleased to achieve this significant milestone with delivering our KATFISH™ and ALARS systems to the Royal Danish Navy. Despite the many challenges of the past two years, and the impacts on global supply chains that all companies have felt in our industry, Kraken is successfully delivering a significant technical upgrade to the minehunting capabilities of MCM Denmark. Our team has been working closely with our customers at DALO and MCM Denmark throughout the Acquisition Contract, and as we complete acceptance testing this year, we are looking forward to a long-term relationship with the Danish Navy.”
