Jeppesen and FarSounder partner

ADVERTISEMENT

Jeppesen and FarSounder have partnered on the FarSounder-500 and FarSounder-1000 sonar systems. FarSounder’s software uses Jeppesen charts as part of its 3D forward-looking sonar’s chart overlay feature and Jeppesen will provide a three-month trial of charts. The promotion will run through March 1, 2014.

 

“We are excited to be partnering with FarSounder to offer our customers the best in both sonar navigation technology and digital chart data,” said Gunn-Lisbet Opshaug, Jeppesen’s commercial marketing manager.

 

The chart overlay is produced by correlating the sonar’s data to a geo-spatial position and displaying information from the sonar data on top of Jeppesen’s digital charts.

 

“FarSounder welcomes this opportunity to strengthen our partnership with Jeppesen, one of the leading global providers of digital vector chart data,” said Matthew Zimmerman, FarSounder vice president of engineering. “Chart overlay is a valuable feature that aids operator comprehension and enables users to more quickly see where potential navigation obstacles are located.”
