Jeppesen and FarSounder announced today a joint promotion for the FarSounder-500 and FarSounder-1000 sonar systems. FarSounder's software uses Jeppesen charts as part of their 3D forward looking sonar's chart overlay feature.
Jeppesen will provide a three-month trial of the latest Jeppesen charts for key regions of the customers' travel areas. This promotion will run through to 1st March, 2014.
Gunn-Lisbet Opshaug, commercial marketing manager of Jeppesen said, "We are excited to be partnering with FarSounder to offer our customers the best in both sonar navigation technology and digital chart data.”
FarSounder is the recognised leader in realtime 3D sonar systems. They have been selling their flagship navigation and obstacle avoidance systems since 2004. 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.
Matthew Zimmerman, vice president of engineering at FarSounder said, "We welcome this opportunity to strengthen our partnership with Jeppesen, one of the leading global providers of digital vector chart data. Chart overlay is a valuable feature which aids operator comprehension and enables users to more quickly see where potential navigation obstacles are located."
