“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 first-of-its-kind, fully-integrated, maritime precision engagement fast-boat platform, designed to provide effective swarmed-strike response to littoral water threats. The K50 is heavily weaponised, combining the latest defence and maritime technologies to best effect in the protection of sovereign green-water infrastructure and interests. Additional Kraken platforms are under development and will benefit from the forward looking nature of this agreement.
The Black Scorpion is a cost-effective and highly-flexible technology 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, usable in a broad set of applications and available in both 12.7mm and 20mm versions.
