British maritime technology company Kraken Technology Group (KTG) has announced the signing of a partnership agreement with high-technology company Leonardo.
The partnership reflects several areas of collaboration and development, beginning with the integration of Leonardo’s Black Scorpion mini-torpedo system into the K50 KRAKEN platform to enhance its sub-surface domain capability. The collaboration also continues with the opportunity to integrate a wider range of Leonardo systems into future Kraken platforms, including LIONFISH to provide defence and anti-surface warfare (ASuW) capaibility.
“Teaming with Leonardo and integrating their market leading defence systems will unlock yet another dimension in Kraken’s ability to effectively counter multi-domain threats above and below surface,” said Mal Crease, Founder and CEO of Kraken Technology Group.
The K50 KRAKEN is a fully-integrated maritime precision engagement fast-boat platform, designed to provide effective, swarmed-strike response to water threats. The K50 is also heavily weaponised, combining latest defence and maritime technologies to protect sovereign green-water infrastructure and interests.
The Black Scorpion is a cost-effective and highly flexible technology which is designed to facilitate the engagement of sub-surface threats in challenging operational scenarios; while LIONFISH is Leonardo’s lightweight and compact new family of small calibre naval turrets, which can be used in a broad set of applications and available in both 12.7mm and 20mm versions.
