The acquisition of GeoAcoustics Ltd by Kongsberg Maritime was completed in September this year. This was followed up immediately by a number of meetings, the latest at the Kongsberg Maritime office in Horten, Norway, focusing on marketing and sales issues. Helge Uhlen, Product Sales Manager at Kongsberg Maritime, invited representatives from GeoAcoustics to introduce its present and upcoming product range to Kongsberg Maritime and representatives of sister companies worldwide.
In discussions with a focus on the market the integration was brought under way by getting the world wide sales network operational by supplying information and support for the GeoAcoustics product range.

It product range covers Swath Bathymetry Systems, Side Scan Sonars and Sub-Bottom Profilers, which compliments Kongsberg Maritime's portfolio and strengthens its market position by offering full sonar solutions.
