A St. John’s-based marine technology company is celebrating what it calls a major milestone in the company’s evolution.
Kraken Robotic Systems has received pre-qualification status with the federal government’s Build in Canada Innovation Program. The company’s Thunderfish® 300 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle has been pre-qualified for military and scientific applications.
The Thunderfish® AUV is a marine robot designed for ultra high-resolution seabed imaging, and can be used for a wide range of oceanographic and military jobs including underwater surveys, environmental monitoring, habitat mapping and marine archaeology.
President and CEO Karl Kenny says it’s a significant milestone for the company.
