Next generation 3D forward looking sonar

This presentation will describe Vigilant FLS which is the result of 10 years development from a military specification FLS to the current generation of commercial high definition long range sonar with 3D mapping capability over 120 degrees of arc, to a depth of 100m. The resolution is such that it will identify in-water column hazards and uncharted seabed hazards. Vigilant is currently in use on autonomous vehicles and is capable of full integration with third party command and control systems and can be controlled completely by the AI. This is proven technology with continuing develoment of new solutions for multiple hull and mounting forms.
