Jason Reid, CEO of Coda Octopus, who is interviewed in the feature, reports: "After 10 years of development, our recently announced commercialization of the Coda Echoscope is attracting a very high degree of interest worldwide, spurred by the growing concern about the safety of our ports and harbors."

"With this revolutionary technology, it is possible to clearly 'see' underwater intruders and mine-like objects and to transmit information about them in real time to remote command and control centers," Mr. Reid said.

"In addition," he said, "the Coda Echoscope has other significant commercial applications, which we also believe will translate into growing orders for the product in the months ahead."
