This partnership is now extending beyond K50 into the development of both fast landing craft and autonomous platforms.

The signing of a formal teaming agreement will enable the combined team to accelerate disruptive maritime platforms from the concept stage, through architecture and engineering process, to prototyping, production readiness and advanced manufacturing.

“We were a formidable team in the development of the K50 KRAKEN, and formalising a deeper collaboration between Kraken and Steller Systems to further accelerate the delivery of a broader range of … products is a logical and exciting progression,” Mal Crease, Founder and CEO of Kraken Technology Group, commented.

Back in April, Kraken completed private funding for the K50 craft.

The platform is designed specifically to meet the growing global requirement for fast-response precision engagement, coastal interdiction and the protection of critical offshore infrastructure. It was developed to directly address the growing challenges presented by swarming activities through a range of integrated modular systems and sensors.

So far, the company has teamed up with several companies to work on the vessel, including Thales, MSI-Defence Systems, and Dillon Aero.
