FarSounder Named Winner of International Technology Award

FarSounder is pleased to announce that they have won first place for technology in the International Superyacht Technology and Innovation Awards (ISTIA) competition. The award was presented last week at SEAS2005 in Nice, France. The competition was created by The Yacht Report in order to recognize excellence in technological advancement in the yachting industry. The goal of the ISTIA program is to focus on aspects of products and solutions that have a high impact on the superyacht industry.

FarSounder earned this prestigious award for its FS-3DT sonar which is capable of generating a complete 3-dimensional image of the sea floor and in-water objects at navigationally significant ranges (¼ mile or 440 meters) with a single ping.

The selection process was very competitive with dozens of unique and highly qualified entries. The new FarSounder system, which incorporates advanced technologies, revolutionizes marine navigation, especially in shallow areas.

FarSounder's CEO, Cheryl M. Zimmerman, accepted the award for the company. Ms. Zimmerman expressed thanks to her hard working FarSounder team for their dedication and perseverance as well as to the competition organizers and the superyacht industry for their recognition of this enabling technology.
