FarSounder's FS-SPS offers numerous advantages over other diver detection products. Three primary differntiators are:
- FS-SPS uses fixed installation transducers, negating the need to use large hydraulic mounts and allowing for fast departures.
- 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.
- When underway, the same hardware provides forward looking navigation sonar capabilities similar to the FarSounder-1000.
