FarSounder sonar finds clear paths for cruise ships FarSounder has released a new introductory video designed to help users navigate its Forward Looking Sonar system, and its unique technology. The video outlines the three different models Argos Series navigational sonars, including the Argos 1000, which is fitted on a variety of cruise ships. It allows large ships to sail safely and efficiently, by alerting navigators to in-water dangers up to one kilometre ahead. The video is an ideal training resource for new crew members who are using FarSounder systems for the first time. The technology aims to ease the minds of captains and crew as it helps provide safe passage through the unpredictable waterways.
