The World, ResidenSea's private luxury condominium cruiseship, will have a FarSounder navigation and obstacle avoidance system installed during its spring drydock scheduled for Lisbon, Portugal. This system provides The World increased accessibility to explore many of the unique and remote areas it cruises to while also providing an added level of navigation and obstacle avoidance capability for the benefit of all on board.
Current products are used on commercial and private ships for obstacle avoidance and shallow water navigation. FarSounder FS-3 sonars are capable of generating a complete 3-dimensional image of the sea floor and in-water objects at navigationally significant ranges with a single ping. They offer visualization of a clear, easy to understand 3D sonar image. This sonar technology revolutionizes marine navigation, especially in shallow areas.
FarSounder's technology is appropriate for navigation, obstacle avoidance and security and defense applications.The company is currently working on a Phase II SBIR for the Department of Homeland Security.
