FarSounder, a leader in 3D forward-looking sonar, has announced the issuance of their fifth patent.

It was issued by the Japanese Patent Office, one of the largest in the world. This patent relates to their invention of integrated sonar devices and methods and is FarSounder's first issued in Japan.

"Since 2004, FarSounder has delivered reliable navigation to vessel operators. With this invention, we expand upon our innovative navigation tool. This technology will help assure our IP as we expand our product lines into new applications and markets." Says Matthew Zimmerman, VP of Engineering at FarSounder and one of our inventors.

This exciting invention generally relates to sonar devices that integrate forward-looking sensors with down-looking echosounders, side scanning sonar or both. It includes a forward-looking sonar device that operates in an integrated fashion with one or more sonar devices.
