    FarSounder and NAVTOR announce a new partnership

    FarSounder and NAVTOR announce a new partnership. FarSounder now includes support for NAVTOR official ENC chart data in their base software package to its customers, according to the company's release.

    NAVTOR created e-Navigation tools that are safe, simple, and more efficient. Similarly, FarSounder’s Argos 3D Forward Looking Sonar provides safe navigation by detecting many ocean obstacles via an easy-to-understand user interface. This partnership brings an impactful software update for the Argos technology.
     
    “In this release, users will not only have support for NAVTOR ENC chart data included, but they will also be able to bring up Automatic Identification System (AIS) targets and Automatic Radar Plotting Aid (ARPA) targets in the Chart Viewer,” says Cheryl M. Zimmerman, CEO at Farsounder. “Support for new NMEA message types associated with AIS and ARPA targets has been added and are easily displayed on the FarSounder stand-alone system. With this additional information, customers have a complete understanding of their surroundings on one screen.”
     
    About Farsounder:

    For 20 years, Farsounder dedicated itself to tackling new ideas and developing 3D Forward Looking Sonar technology (3D FLS). The company's unique patented technology paints a clear picture of what lies ahead underwater and along the bottom, reducing the likelihood of collisions, which in turn prevents costly damage to property, the environment, and marine and human lives alike. The Argos 1000, Argos 500, and Argos 350 are able to provide customers with a whole suite of sophisticated navigation capabilities of interest to many types of vessels.
