refit

Refit

More than 50% of FarSounder's installations are refits. We have the experience to move quickly through the installation and integration process. Fairing design and integration can be performed in a matter of days. Installing a FarSounder navigation sonar during a refit is a straight-forward process. Our fixed fairing installation requires no moving parts. The sensor can even be installed and removed by a diver once the fairing is in place.

The process is as follows:

  • Using our Installation Design Guide as a starting point, create drawings for the sonar faring.
  • Receive a complimentary review of your faring drawings by FarSounder engineers.
  • Have the shipyard install the sonar fairing (while the vessel is out of the water).
  • Install the sonar equipment (in or out of the water).

New Build

Integrating a FarSounder navigation sonar into a new build project is a straight-forward process. Our fixed fairing installation requires no moving parts. The sensor can even be installed and removed by a diver once the fairing is in place. FarSounder is happy to work with shipyards and designers even before the electronics package is finalized.

The process is as follows:

  • Using our Installation Design Guide as a starting point, create drawings for the sonar faring.
  • Receive a complimentary review of your faring drawings by FarSounder engineers.
  • Have the shipyard install the sonar fairing (while the vessel is out of the water).
  • Install the sonar equipment (in or out of the water).
