FarSounder’s 3D Forward Looking Sonar [FLS] systems provides real-time imagery of what’s beneath of the waters ahead. These systems give mariners the security of safely navigating through challenging waters and promptly being alerted when objects are approaching from up to 1000 meters ahead. Operators are able to detect hazards, shallow bottoms, and a variety of moving underwater obstacles.
Radar, depth sounders, ECDIS, and electronics charts with GPS are missing an important piece of information. The FarSounder navigational sonar systems provide this missing piece of the puzzle. Your charts don't know what has changed on the ocean floor; your radar can't see through water; and your depth sounder only looks down. This allows crew to look ahead and navigate with confidence.
This user-friendly technology is fully integrated with the Wärtsilä Sam NACOS Platinum bridge for seamless operating. FarSounder’s SonaSoft™ software also allows for imaging to be easily overlaid on C-MAP Professional and S57 and S63 charts. FarSounder Sonars are used by all types of vessels in oceans and seas around the globe.
