FarSounder Provides Sonar for RNLN Hydrographic Vessels

FarSounder has supplied Forward-Looking Sonar (FLS) for the Royal Netherlands Navy’s (RNLN) hydrographic survey vessels, the HNLMS Snellius (A802) and HNLMS Luymes (A803).

The company’s 3D sonar systems will provide real-time data on what lies ahead under the water as the ships navigate the seas, giving both crews an elevated sense of safety and security as part of their mid-life upkeep (MLU).

These ships’ missions will be both military and public safety operations. However, the primary task of these vessels is to perform hydrographic survey duties in both the North Sea and the Netherlands Antilles.

These duties include rapid environmental assessments, in addition to bathymetry and route surveys. Ultimately, the vessels will collect data for the Hydrographic Service of the sea.

One of the most useful applications of the FarSounder FLS for these vessels is its Local History Mapping (LHM). This capability allows for real-time mapping of the seafloor. This map updates every two seconds and will have the ability to be saved for future use.

The two vessels being fitted with FarSounder FLS are contracted by Radio Holland Netherlands, one of FarSounder’s dealers.
