After several years of development, US-based marine electronics manufacturer FarSounder has introduced its new generation of navigation sonars at the 2012 Monaco Yacht Show—the FarSounder-500 (able to detect target 500 meters away) and FarSounder-1000 (for targets 1000 meters away).
They feature longer detection ranges, improved image stability and chart overlay. System improvements, a company press release states, include a transducer module electronics redesign and cutting-edge sonar signal processing. All of the transducer modules shipped since January 2012 are eligible for a free software upgrade.
Specializing in marine acoustics, FarSounder has expanded its product line with its Ship Protection System, which includes fixed underwater sensors able to detect divers or approaching objects.
