The marine technology company Kraken Robotics has received $1.7 million purchase orders from Ocean Infinity for the AquaPix Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) sensors and support.

According to a press note from the provider of software-centric sensors and underwater robotic systems, product delivery is expected during Q1 and Q2, 2019. This is the second set of purchase orders from Ocean Infinity under an initial master agreement contract announced in Q3 2017.

Oliver Plunkett, President and CEO of Ocean Infinity said, "We are very pleased to add additional Kraken technology to our suite of latest generation tools with the order of further AquaPix SAS sensors for our AUV fleet. Ocean Infinity will continue to invest in state of the art equipment to maintain our position as the world's most technologically advanced seabed data company."

"This order is placed at an important time in the Ocean Infinity story, as we look forward to delivering excellent service and value to a growing number of clients, and launching our third fully equipped and permanently mobilised vessel which ensures we have a global geographic footprint and the ability to reach any project in a matter of days. We will continue to deliver exceptional value to our clients wherever we operate and working with Kraken is an important part of achieving that goal," Oliver added.

Karl Kenny, Kraken's President and CEO said, "We are pleased to continue to supply Ocean Infinity with our AquaPix SAS sensors for their deep water AUVs, allowing for the collection of high resolution seabed data in water depths up to 6,000 meters and for coverage of large swaths of seabed quickly and accurately. Ocean Infinity has the world's most advanced unmanned maritime technology for seabed mapping, survey, and search."
