FarSounder enhances UNH studies in ocean mapping

ADVERTISEMENT

The University of New Hampshire has partnered with Rhode Island-based FarSounder to enhance its industrial associates program in ocean mapping.

Students in the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping at the university’s Joint Hydrographic Center will be able to use FarSounder technology to enhance data collection and research, according to a company press release.

In addition to the 3D Forward-looking Sonar, students will have access to Local History Mapping, an application that draws a virtual 3D image of the ocean floor as a ship crosses over it. This bathymetric image is updated with every ping and can be displayed as an overlay on a chart, according to the company.

The Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping/Joint Hydrographic Center (CCOM/JHC) was founded in 1999 to develop tools to advance ocean mapping and hydrography, and to train the next generation of hydrographers and ocean mappers. The JHC is a formal cooperative partnership between the University of New Hampshire and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

FarSounder is a high-tech marine electronics manufacturer specializing in underwater acoustics. The company has been selling its flagship navigation and obstacle avoidance systems in the commercial, government, and private sectors since 2004.
