Software overlays nav charts with real-time sonar

ADVERTISEMENT

Rhode Island-based FarSounder, a high-technology marine electronics manufacturer, has upgraded its latest SonaSoft software release to be compatible with S-57 and S-63 charts. Anyone using these chart formats is now able to overlay real-time data on their charts using FarSounder’s software.

“The operators of those ships preferring to use S-57 and S-63 charts are important to us,” said Cheryl M. Zimmerman, FarSounder CEO. “Our team has worked diligently, with the user in mind, to make this option a reality for them.”

The software upgrade provides ships the safety of real-time 3D sonar data and the luxury of creating historical bathymetric maps. Mariners can compare what their chart says is ahead of them to what a FarSounder sonar sees in real time, updating with every ping.
