Two of our team members, Heath Henley and Matt Zimmerman, are members of the Crowdsourced Bathymetry Working Group (CSBWG), a group brought together by the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO). The CSBWG joins IHO affiliates and relevant industry stakeholders to work together on data gathering and the resulting datasets. The work done by this group is vital in the overall process of collecting bathymetric data for many initiatives including Seabed 2030. FarSounder is proud to see Heath and Matt take part in such an important initiative with the goal of making the oceans safer for all mariners.

06/22/2022

Yesterday, our Chairman of the Board & Market Development Strategist Cheryl Zimmerman attended the International Trade Conference in Warwick, Rhode Island, representing FarSounder. The theme of this conference was “Overcoming Obstacles in International Trade” featuring a panel of Rhode Island experts from local businesses.

Cheryl took this opportunity to discuss the challenges faced during the exporting of Dual Use products and technology to customers (and countries) on a global scale, and how a local company can have an impact globally, particularly within our maritime industry.

The keynote speaker Gabriel Esparza, along with U.S. Senators Sheldon Whitehouse and Jack Reed, also touched on how the U.S. government can be a resource to U.S. local small businesses by creating new government programs geared to helping businesses thrive while onshoring operations and exporting goods.

Thank you to RI Business Forum for putting on such an informative event!
