Forward-looking Sonar Upgrade

FarSounder will be launching a software upgrade for its FarSounder-500 and FarSounder-1000 forward-looking navigation sonars. The upgrade will increase the intuitive nature of the information and enhance users' understanding of the obstacles and sea bed ahead of their ship. The full release will be announced at SMM Hamburg and the Monaco Yacht Show later this year. At FarSounder’s recent customer demonstrations and technical training class, participants were introduced to a few of the upcoming new capabilities. A sampling of these features included Ping-to-Ping Sea Floor Stabilisation, Improved Sea Floor Imaging and Sea Floor Chart Overlay. FarSounder’s guests saw a demonstration... (read more)

Sonar in Fisheries Research

A year round study on fish migration
Fisheries acoustics has its origin in the marine environment. Only with the development of small elliptical beams has it become possible to apply sonar in shallow freshwater. Since 1992 the Organisation for the Improvement of Inland Fisheries uses sonar for fisheries research, in The Netherlands. The mean application of sonar in freshwater is fish stock assessment by means of a mobile survey. In addition, sonar equipment can be applied at a fixed location to study fish migration. This gives information on the exact timing, direction and relative number of migrating fish over time. To be sure of the absolute number,... (read more)
