CCOM at UNH Partners with FarSounder - 24/09/2018

The Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping (CCOM) at the Joint Hydrographic Center at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) in the USA has added FarSounder as a partner in its Industrial Associates programme. As a globally recognised expert in 3D forward-looking sonar technology, FarSounder gives the students a new layer of information for their studies. In addition to providing students the benefit of identifying obstacles ahead of the ship, FarSounder’s technology has a fascinating feature called Local History Mapping (LHM). This application draws a virtual 3D image of the ocean floor as a ship sails over. This bathymetric image is updated with every ping and can be displayed as an overlay on top of a chart.

Students in the CCOM programme are working towards becoming experts in the field of ocean mapping. With the addition of FarSounder’s technology, the students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with this unique technology and the potential to apply the data collected to their research.
