Canada-based Shark Marine Technologies Inc. develops and delivers innovative technologies for commercial diving, scientific research, survey firms, film production companies, search and recovery organizations and some of the most elite military and law enforcement agencies around the world, and has recently secured a pair of naval references.

The company supplies video systems, ROVs and accessories, diver held systems, diver delivery systems, software, sonar systems, magnometers, tether management solutions, connectors as well as other custom products. Shark Marine’s MAKO diver delivery system was recently chosen by the Royal Navy.  The recent acquisition of the system fully equipped with a Shark Marine Navigator diver-held sonar and navigation system, provides the user with the ability to conduct underwater investigations, reconnaissance and object identification. The system allows the operator to select the tools needed for the task at hand. Multi-beam sonar capabilities for safer operation in poor visibility; navigation capabilities for mapping and tracking the divers progress; video recording capabilities for inspection and identification purposes as well as autonomous operation capable of completing activities with or without a diver.  Hot swappable, neutrally buoyant batteries allow the MAKO continuous operation.

The Danish Navy selected Shark’s Navigator diver-held sonar and navigation system.  Divers will be able to cover expansive MCM area searches as well as shallow water security operations.
