Akoostix was very pleased to have the opportunity to demonstrate TruView to Canada’s Minister of Defence, Peter MacKay, as he announced funding for Akoostix and the Canadian Navy Memorial Trust (CNMT). The demonstration was provided by Leading Seaman (LS) Patrick Murray from the Acoustic Data Analysis Centre’s (ADAC) Research Department. ADAC has been supporting Akoostix in the test and evaluation of TruView through the government’s Canadian Innovation Commercialization Program (CICP) program. ADAC now owns TruView and has been using it to process data from Canadian ships, submarines, and sonobuoys at speeds ranging between 8 and 100 times real time.
Commenting on TruView, Minister MacKay said, “It probably would have saved a lot of lives, I dare say. It has application across our entire navy fleet, and I’m suspect that some of our allies will be very interested in this technology.” For more on the news release.
