Kraken Robotic Enters strategic partnership with Avitas Systems

The partnership expands capabilities for inspections of ship and FPSO hulls, underwater production fields, subsea pipelines and cables and offshore wind farm assets. Kraken’s SeaVision™ sensor, which can flexibly attach to AUVs and Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), combines laser scanning and optical imaging to provide highly detailed data for inspectors and operators. The sensor’s unprecedented colourized laser imagery better detects and characterizes corrosion, cracks, marine growth and other defects. SeaVision’s laser scanning process can be repeated thousands of times per second to generate coordinate values for millions of points on a surface. These points then become highly accurate and intricate 3D models of subsea infrastructure. Avitas Systems will also use sonar technology and navigational software from Kraken Robotics to optimize robots’ abilities to follow supervisory commands, track pipeline or subsea field positioning with AI-powered swim paths and identify priority areas for inspection. Kraken’s AquaPix® Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) technology will specifically enable 3D volumetric imaging, particularly useful for buried pipeline inspection and broader seafloor viewing. The high-resolution images of assets’ surface contours can be inputted into the Avitas Systems cloud-based platform, where advanced algorithms fuse multiple sensor data, perform image analytics and predict actionable outcomes in real-time. The Avitas Systems platform can centralize and prioritize the inspection data by areas of interest to inspectors, which will increase efficiency.
