FarSounder's FS-SPS offers numerous advantages over other diver detection products. Three primary differntiators are:

  1. FS-SPS uses fixed installation transducers, negating the need to use large hydraulic mounts and allowing for fast departures.
  2. The software for the FS-SPS has been developed explicitly for ease of use, making this product suitable for yachts, passenger vessels, and commercial ships who do not have navy sonar operators on board.
  3. When underway, the same hardware provides forward looking navigation sonar capabilities similar to the FarSounder-1000.
