ST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland, June 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kraken Robotics Inc. (TSX-V: PNG) (OTCQB: KRKNF) (“Kraken” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Kraken Robotic Systems Inc., has received a purchase order from ThayerMahan Inc., for a KATFISH™ 180 system. ThayerMahan Inc. is a US-based company specializing in the design, integration, and operation of autonomous maritime systems for government, industry, and academic customers. The contract value is $2.1 million and delivery is expected in Q3, 2019. ThayerMahan will deploy Kraken’s KATFISH 180 as part of its SeaScout® expeditionary system for seabed mapping and intelligence.
Admiral (retired) Mike Connor, ThayerMahan’s President and CEO said, “We are pleased to bring Kraken technology into the portfolio of systems and services we provide to our clients. The search rate, resolution, seakeeping ability, and real-time processing of the KATFISH system will enable ThayerMahan to deliver a level of service that will fundamentally change the maritime survey industry. We are committed to helping our customers operate safely and responsibly on and under the ocean.”
This is the first order resulting from a strategic alliance entered between the two companies in February 2018. Under this collaboration, both companies are delivering next generation underwater sensors and robotics for military, law enforcement, port and maritime security, environmental monitoring, and seabed survey applications. In August 2018, the companies participated in the US Navy’s Advanced Naval Technology Exercise, an annual invitation-only event that was created by the U.S. Navy to see the future of naval technology in action today.
Karl Kenny, Kraken’s President and CEO said, “We are delighted to receive this order from ThayerMahan. Seafloor mapping is one of the oldest professions known to humankind. For thousands of years, mariners have been measuring the seabed under their vessels. Today’s ocean surveying market is valued at over US$3 billion per year. Kraken’s customers have requested a high speed, ultra-high resolution seabed mapping solution that leverages our sensor and robotics technology. With KATFISH™, surveyors can now increase the quantity of seafloor data, significantly improve data quality and lower data acquisition costs – all in real time.”

U.S. Navy to Evaluate Kraken Sensors for Man-Portable AUVs
ST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland, June 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kraken Robotics Inc. (TSX-V: PNG) (OTCQB: KRKNF) (“Kraken” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Kraken Robotic Systems Inc., has been selected by the US Office of the Secretary of Defense, Comparative Test Office, to participate in a Foreign Comparative Testing (FCT) program in support of a US Navy Program of Record managed by the Naval Sea Systems Command, EOD Program Office. The FCT is designed to test selected foreign technologies as evaluated by US military operators, with a view to future procurement. The contract value is $0.9 million.
Under this contract, Kraken will integrate its AquaPix® MINSAS sensor on a man-portable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) owned by the U.S. Navy. Man-portable AUVs make up the largest deployment of all AUV classes world-wide. The U.S. Navy and its allies continue to invest in man-portable AUVs, which today utilize a range of sonar technologies. Kraken’s AquaPix® MINSAS synthetic aperture sonar sensor is currently offered in the MINSAS 60, 120, 180, and 240 configurations and has been traditionally integrated to medium- and large-size AUVs and towfish. As part of this FCT contract, Kraken will optimize the MINSAS 60 sensor making it better suited for small, man-portable AUVs while offering a significant increase in capability and performance for man-portable platforms.
Karl Kenny, Kraken’s President and CEO said, “We are very pleased to be awarded this FCT contract as this represents a truly significant opportunity for Kraken. The competition for FCT awards is fierce and only a few projects each year that meet the strict criteria are selected. An acceptable FCT project must have a high technology readiness level, which means that research and testing must have already been completed, and the capability has already been proven in a setting similar to what will be encountered in real-world operations. We believe this initial contract will further prove our MINSAS 60 is a reasonably priced, high-performance sonar upgrade path for existing man-portable AUVs as well as new builds.”
About Foreign Comparative Test Program
The Foreign Comparative Testing (FCT) program is to test items and technologies of United States foreign allies that have a high Technology Readiness Level (TRL) in order to satisfy valid defense requirements quickly and economically. FCT continues to be a uniquely successful acquisition tool from a U.S. government-to-foreign industry standpoint. Since 1980, the FCT program has helped to foster the two-way street in defense spending between the U.S. and its allies with more than 500 FCT projects from over 25 countries having been completed resulting in procurement of more than $5 billion in foreign items. The program has reaped substantial savings by avoiding research and development costs, lowering procurement costs, reducing risk for major acquisition programs and accelerating the fielding of equipment critical to the readiness and safety of U.S. operating forces. Since the FCT program focuses on mature technologies, each project has accelerated acquisition. The FCT program enables deployment of the world's best technology into the field quickly, normally in less than 18 months.
The FCT program has served as a catalyst for industry teaming arrangements, which have been productive for both U.S. and foreign industries in an increasingly competitive global market, helping to build a robust U.S. defense industrial base. Foreign items are nominated by a sponsoring organization within the Department of Defense for testing in order to determine whether the items satisfy U.S. military requirements or address mission area shortcomings.
The FCT program's objectives are to improve the U.S. warfighter's capabilities and reduce expenditures through:
Rapidly fielding of quality military equipment
Eliminating unnecessary duplication of research, development, test and evaluation
Reducing life cycle or procurement costs
Enhancing standardization and interoperability
Promoting competition by qualifying alternative sources
Improving the U.S. military industrial base
