About FarSounder, Inc.
Your vessel empowers you to explore the world. FarSounder believes you should be able to explore the corners of the world safely. FarSounder’s Forward Looking Sonar (FLS) enables you to navigate safely. As the globally recognized leader in FLS, this state-of-the-art technology will allow you to see what is ahead of your vessel under the water in real-time and in 3D. These innovative sonar systems are being used all around the world on types of vessels, from yachts and cruise ships to military vessels. These unique systems provide peace-of-mind to the user even in unchartered waters, hazardous areas and risky weather conditions.
This 3D FLS technology is designed for obstacle and shallows avoidance greatly reducing the likelihood of collisions. It helps prevent costly damages to property, the environment, and marine and human lives. As an added layer of protection, the interface software features an overlay of the real-time sonar imagery on top of standard nautical charts. This allows the user to easily make course corrections if something appears that isn’t on the chart.
Now, FarSounder has taken this application a step further and developed Local History Mapping (LHM). This new feature enables users to build a map of the seafloor where they've recently sailed. One can quickly see what lies ahead and what they've recently passed over. The map created is able to be saved and used in multiple situations including being used as a reference as the ship departs a tricky area recently entered.
FarSounder continues to innovate and bring new applications of their technology to its users. Visit www.farsounder.com to learn more.
