FarSounder and NSSLGlobal have joined forces to introduce FarSounder's Argos product line to their defence, commercial, and leisure clients. These innovative Forward-Looking Sonars (FLS) are used for safe navigation and obstacle avoidance. FarSounder's technology is renowned in the cruise and leisure markets and is increasingly being adopted in both the Scientific/Exploration and Defence sectors both of which are moving towards Unmanned Surface Vessels. Vessels are often operating in more challenging environments such as higher latitudes where there may be ice, poorly charted areas, or austere ports. This unique patented technology paints a clear picture of what lies ahead underwater of the vessel, reducing the likelihood of collisions, which in turn prevents costly damage to property, the environment, and marine and human lives alike.
