QPS integrates FarSounder sonar

QPS integrates FarSounder sonar Netherlands-based Quality Positioning Services (QPS) has integrated Argos Forward Looking Sonars (FLS) from US company FarSounder into its Qinsy survey software package (pictured).

Argos sonar users are now able to display their FLS bathymetric data in the Qinsy platform along with the rest of the survey data they are capturing.  Hydrographic software products from QPS are used by the Royal Netherlands Navy, which recently installed Argos 1000 sonars on its latest upgraded vessels.

‘The ability to stream data from FarSounder's sonars into Qinsy will allow operators to not only use their Argos systems to navigate in real-time, but also monitor bathymetry and detected hazards in Qinsy,’ said Heath Henley, hydrographic specialist at FarSounder. ‘Users will now be able to incorporate bathymetric data collected using FarSounder's forward-looking capability into their workflow.’
