FarSounder is a leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of 3D sonar systems. The company applies its 3D technology to commercial, recreational, defense and homeland security markets, internationally as well as domestically. From advanced 3D long range navigation to underwater Diver Detection, it provides a new vision underwater. The technology is suitable for surface/sub-surface vessels and along waterside perimeters. The FarSounder-1000 is FarSounder’s flagship navigation sonar & offers benefits to safe navigation: 3D forward looking navigation information out to over 1/2 nautical mile (1000m) ahead of the vessel. Delivering the three critical readings required: range, bearing, and depth, FarSounder challenges the boundaries of sonar technology to provide operators with a practical addition to navigation safety.
