Kraken Robotics inviting you to a technical briefing on July 19th

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

See letter below from Kraken Robotics President and CEO Karl Kenny:

Friends and Colleagues,

As many of you know, Kraken Robotics and Ocean Infinity recently signed an MOU for strategic collaboration:

http://globenewswire.com/news-release/2018/07/05/1533605/0/en/Kraken-Finalizes-MOU-with-Ocean-Infinity.html

As part of our strategic alliance, Ocean Infinity is planning to deploy deep-sea capable survey assets to the east coast of Canada this fall for display and exhibition with potential research and development opportunities.

These assets will consist of a support ship, two 6,000m rated HUGIN AUVs equipped with Kraken’s AquaPix® SAS sonar technology and two work class ROVs that will be fitted with Kraken’s SeaVision® 3D underwater laser imaging system. While in the region, Kraken and Ocean Infinity plan to conduct a variety of deep sea mapping and survey campaigns in various market sectors including oil and gas, hydrography, ocean research, fisheries, defense and exploration.

Kraken and Ocean Infinity will provide a technical briefing on July 18 in Halifax (Windsor Room Pier 21) and July 19 in St. John’s (Theatre at the Rooms) to provide an overview of the Kraken / Ocean Infinity sensors and marine robotics technology and the benefits we feel it can provide to the Ocean Supercluster community. To maximize convenience, we have been able to book the same venues after the Ocean Supercluster briefings on those dates.

Starting at 1230 on each day, we will serve a light lunch (soup and sandwiches) for those interested in attending the briefing session. Depending on questions, we expect that the briefing should be concluded by around 1400. The CEO and CTO of Ocean Infinity have advised that they will attend in both Halifax and St. John’s along with senior personnel from Kraken and other strategic partners.

If you’re available and interested in attending either of these briefings, we would appreciate it if you can RSVP to Glenda Leyte, (gleyte@krakenrobotics.com) by Wednesday, July 11. Please advise of any food preferences or allergies.

We look forward to seeing you there and advising you about the world’s most technologically advanced seabed survey capability.

Karl
