Kraken Technology Group (KTG) has partnered with MSI-Defence Systems (MSI-DS) in order to develop key systems on the K50 KRAKEN maritime gunship.
With more than 120 years of experience in the defense industry, UK-based MSI-DS specializes in precision engagement, weapons direction, remote situational awareness and hard kill on a range of host platforms for naval, land, and littoral environments.
This partnership agreement reflects many areas of collaboration and development between both parties, specifically the integration of MSI-DS’s Seahawk Compact Weapon Station (CWS30) and Lightweight Multi-role Missile (LMM) launcher into the K50 KRAKEN maritime precision engagement vessel. The companies hope this will meet fast interception and interdiction requirements of navies, border forces and law-enforcement agencies.
“We look forward to working with MSI-Defence Systems to equip the KRAKEN with their range of advance weapon systems,” said Mal Crease, Founder and CEO of Kraken Technology Group. “MSI-DS is well recognized for developing, delivering and supporting weapons systems with outstanding performance and precision. This partnership will deliver key aspects of the KRAKEN’s specific precision engagement requirements, which features 5 different types of inbuilt weapons systems covering air, surface and sub-surface.”
“I believe the MSI-DS and Kraken partnership is a powerful combination, and we are looking forward to collaborating on the game-changing K50 KRAKEN platform,” said John Meldrum, Managing Director at MSI Defence Systems Limited. “The fully equipped and definitive maritime precision engagement craft, complete with formidable weaponization, will deliver unparalleled levels of performance, modularity and operational capability for modern green and brown water security operations.”
