FarSounder Inc.

THE STORY: FarSounder Inc.’s products have been out on the high seas – literally. The Argos Forward Looking Sonar, made in Warwick, allows ships to navigate safely through oceans and other waterways.

› The Argos series – the 350, 500 and 1,000 – are installed on all types of vessels from large cruise ships and super yachts to commercial vessels, such as survey and research vessels.

› Each product costs between $55,000 and $180,000.

› The sonar has a user interface showing 3D imagery in up to a 120-degree field of view out to significant ranges. They are made with a transducer module with advanced acoustic phased arrays, advanced analog and digital electronics, a custom cable and a processing computer, among other components.

› It takes approximately three to four people about three to four days to assemble and test new sonars.

› FarSounder’s work has expanded into such areas as shipboard and portside security, marine mammal protection, fisheries, ocean sustainability and real-time mapping.

COVID-PROOF: Far Sounder has not closed during the pandemic and production of the series has continued throughout.
