SeeByte and Kraken Robotic Systems have partnered to provide the KATFISH with an embedded ATR system to the Royal Danish Navy and the Polish Navy.

SeeByte and Kraken Robotic Systems have partnered to integrate Seabyte’s Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) system onto Kraken’s Katfish towed Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS).

The Katfish SAS, complete with the embedded ATR system, will be delivered to the Royal Danish Navy and the Polish Navy to support their mine countermeasure activities.

Katfish is a high-speed, actively stabilised, towed SAS vehicle designed to be deployed from manned or unmanned surface vehicles.

 It provides ultra-high resolution, high-accuracy sonar imagery, real-time and in mission, covering larger survey areas in less time compared to legacy systems.

Scott Reed, SeeByte chief technology officer, said: ‘Our ATR system is designed with flexibility in mind, offering a range of options from embedded ATR to a complete set of tools that fit into the Post Mission Analysis workflow.’

Integrating Katfish with SeeByte’s ATR system allows for improved real-time target detection and classification, reducing post-mission analysis requirements and enabling operators to review greater quantities of high-definition data in less time.
