KraitArray from SEA An user configurable thin line detection array system, fitted with sensors that are submersed and can passively identify any type of noise in the water. That is the KraitArray from the British firm SEA, which can be used for monitoring and controlling of ports, monitoring of manmals, as well as detecting of surface vessels, submersibles or other kinds of submarine threat. In the past this technology used a cable with a 90 mm of diameter, but SEA’s innovation has made it possible with a cable with only 16 mm of diameter.
KraitArray can be towed and used by an unmanned vessel, a small boat, an OPV or a bigger patrol ship. At the moment the cable has a lenght of 50 meters and SEA expects to extend it to 200 meters in the future.
The detection array takes the energy of the waves to work, and can be used by patrol vessels at sea for periods of up to twelve months, only needing maintenance to the cable, mainly for elimination of the algae that can have adhere to it.
