The company GeoAcoustics (Great Yarmouth, UK) has officially changed its name to Kongsberg GeoAcoustics Ltd on 3rd January 2012, and its Singapore-based Asia-Pacific sales & support hub has been renamed Kongsberg GeoAcoustics Pte Ltd. These name changes represent the ongoing integration of both companies into Kongsberg Maritime's corporate structure.
Kongsberg GeoAcoustics has been manufacturing marine survey equipment for more than 25 years, and is a world-leading manufacturer of sonar survey systems for engineering geophysics and naval survey applications. Principle product lines are swath bathymetry systems for shallow waters, side-scan sonar and sub-bottom profilers. The company's top-selling system is the wide-swath bathymetry system GeoSwath Plus, providing users with very accurate and high-resolution shallow-water multibeam data and simultaneous true georeferenced digital side-scan images. Over 180 GeoSwath Plus systems have been shipped so far for both boat-mounted and AUV/ROV0-mounted installations. In 2011, the Hydrographic Offices of Germany, Mexico, Poland and Spain joined the list of GeoSwath Plus clients.
GeoAcoustics was acquired by Kongsberg Maritime in September 2008 and has since that time been integrated into the infrastructure of its parent company.
