FarSounder has expanded its IP portfolio with the issuance of its fifth US patent, number 20150369908. This invention is related to integrating acoustic data from their sonar system with other down-looking sonar and side-scanning sonar.

This allows vessel operators to have an expansive display in the boat, providing them with valuable information in a variety of directions. Having this information can increase the reliability when navigating and, at the same time, obtaining a clear understanding of the seafloor beneath the vessel.

“The engineering team at FarSounder sees 3D forward-looking sonar as a critical component in a diverse navigation sensor suite,” says Matthew Zimmerman, EVP of Engineering at FarSounder and one of the inventors.

“By adopting a holistic point of view when looking at shipboard navigation, it is clear that information unique to 3D forward looking sonar can improve the overall user experience. This new patent covers many new approaches of fusing this unique input with other, traditional sensors.”

This invention will allow for more applications as FarSounder’s products develop. Its goal is to continue adding value for its users and to ensure safety at sea.
