FarSounder is a world leader in the design, manufacture, & sales of forward looking sonar [FLS] systems that enable mariners to detect underwater obstacles such as navigation hazards, shallow bottoms, & underwater threats such as divers/mini-subs. FarSounder products include advanced long range navigation and provide real-time imagery of what's ahead. Radar, depth sounders, ECDIS, & electronics charts with GPS are missing an important piece of information: What is under the water in front of my ship right now? FLS systems provide this missing piece of the puzzle. Our systems have now been integrated into the Transas Navi-Sailor 4000. Our security products see underwater threats regardless of the water's clarity. When a threat is detected, no time is wasted retrieving the system; allowing you to focus on your next move. Look ahead with a FarSounder because your Radar can't see through water, your charts don't know what has changed, & your depth sounder looks down, not forward.
FarSounder's navigation systems are the only products capable ofgenerating a true,3-dimensional image ahead of a vessel atnavigationally significant ranges. We've worked hard to develop aneasy to understand user interface.
Nothing is more clear than a real-time picture of what isunderwater ahead of you.
Situational awareness is key to safe navigation. FarSounder paintsa clear picture by displaying 3D forward looking sonar data on top ofa nautical chart. Our software includes chart plotting usingJeppesen's C-Map™ vector charts. Our systems have now beenintegrated into the Transas Navi-Sailor 4000™.
Our chart overlay includes the sea floor below and ahead of thevessel as well as objects in the water.
FarSounder security products see underwater threats regardless ofthe water's clarity. Attached to the hull, there is nothing todeploy. When a threat is detected, no time is wasted retrieving thesystem; allowing you to focus on your next move.
Sophisticated algorithms automatically detect, track and classifypossible underwater threats. We've also built in easy to use analysistools to allow quick human verification of the automated alerts.
When a threat is detected, no time is wasted retrieving thesystem; allowing you to focus on your next move. No moving partsmeans easy integration into the hull without complicated maintenanceheadaches. Plus without a hydraulic hoist, you won't need to give upvaluable space inside the vessel.
Our installation design is suitable for vessels with or without abulb on both refit and new-builds.
