Kraken Robotics has been contracted to supply high-resolution seabed mapping sonar services to Precision Hydrographic Services (PHS), a customer supporting the Australian Department of Defence (DoD). 

The Australian DoD has awarded PHS a program to collect Hydrographic High Resolution Route Surveys (RS) for a number of Australian ports. The purpose of the RS is to enable the collection of Maritime Geospatial Information (MGI) to support maritime domain awareness through the acquisition of high-resolution seabed foundation data and associated oceanographic data.

Under the scope of Kraken’s contract, a KATFISH™ high-speed survey/detection solution will be used to acquire high-resolution route surveys of Australian ports. The survey campaign will take place between January and May 2024.

This contract follows the results of a successful in-country demonstration of KATFISH™ for the customer in Q1 of this year and the purchase of a KATFISH system by the RAN in Q2.
