MIND Technology announced today that its Seamap unit has received orders from The Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy System IWES (“Fraunhofer IWES”) for hydrophone arrays and related equipment related to the Manta Ray G2 system. The orders total approximately $0.8 million and are expected to be delivered in fiscal 2024.
Rob Capps, MIND’s President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are excited to be part of the development of Fraunhofer IWES’ Manta Ray G2 High Resolution system. The Manta Ray system has been specifically developed to detect and localize small-scale objects in marine sediments, such as glacial boulders. The system uses unique survey methodology developed by Fraunhofer IWES for the de-risking of offshore constructions sites. Further development and optimization of streamer technologies for application in the wind energy sector are on-going.”
