Kraken Robotics Delivers Minehunting Systems to Royal Danish Navy

Kraken Robotics Inc. recently announced the completion of all deliveries and the successful sea acceptance of all systems for its mine-hunting sonar equipment under the Royal Danish Navy Minehunting sonar upgrade programme. This contract was signed in September 2020, following a competitive bidding process. 
Under the contract with the Danish Ministry of Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO), Kraken has delivered four complete turnkey mine-hunting systems, with each system consisting of a KATFISH towed Synthetic Aperture Sonar, Tentacle Winch and Autonomous Launch and Recovery System (ALARS), topside command and control equipment, and remote operation and monitoring capability for standoff mine-hunting operations.
In 2023, Kraken entered into a seven-year sustainment contract with DALO, with options for two further seven-year extensions for a total possible 21 years of sustainment. The sustainment programme includes regularly scheduled maintenance, repair, overhaul, and provision of training and spare parts. Throughout 2024, Kraken will also be delivering additional spares, including spare tow cables and two spare KATFISH tow bodies.
Kraken has developed and delivered extensive training programmes with the MCM Denmark team, including Onboard Operator, Onboard Maintainer, and Depot Maintainer training certification programmes. As of 2024, the Royal Danish Navy will have completed its first full year of KATFISH operations.
