This Week in the Herald – taking pictures with sound

This week, I talk about Leeway Marine and Kraken Sonar partnering to drive down the cost of High quality Surveys. Kraken Supplies the sonar system, and Leeway Marine supplies the Vessel.

having talked about Leeway Marine in the past, its worth showing off what Kraken Can do.below are images from Kraken’s website, of the Volvos on the bottom of the Bedford basin.


compare these images with the Side Scan Sonar image created by NRCAN from around 2007.


for another Comparison, see the shipwreck image below from  Kraken, and compare that to the side Scan Sonar image of the ferry Governor Cornwallis (also from around 2007, via NRCan)
