The release of SonaSoft 3.0 represents a major upgrade to the state of the art in real-time forward-looking sonar capabilities. New in SonaSoft 3.0, FarSounder has dramatically improved its 3D sonar display. These improvements include:

  1. Target persistence via new image stabilization techniques,
  2. Updated color mapping fusing depth and signal level information,
  3. Significantly improved Auto Squelch mode,
  4. Expanded chart overlay including full 3D image,
  5. One to one scaling of 3D images.

“I’m proud that FarSounder’s development team has once again redefined the performance standard for 3D sonars,” says Matthew Zimmerman, FarSounder’s Vice President of Engineering. “With the launch of SonaSoft 3.0, we continue our commitment to making it even easier for vessel operators to understand what is underwater, ahead of their vessels.” Videos and screenshots of the new software are available on the company’s website.

The software update is compatible with FarSounder’s existing products and is available to all current and new navigation sonar customers. An on-water demonstration of the new software will take place on April 16th in Newport, Rhode Island (USA). Details and registration can be found on FarSounder’s website:
