Sail-World.com : Simrad Yachting scores NMMA innovation award

Simrad Yachting scores NMMA innovation award

'Simrad BSM-2 Broadband Sounder™ module.'    Navico
Simrad Yachting has received the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) Innovation Award for its cutting-edge BSM-2 Broadband Sounder.

Announced during the 70th annual Miami International Boat Show, the NMMA innovation award honours products that best meet the criteria of ‘innovative distinction from other products currently being manufactured; benefit to the marine industry and/or consumer; practicality; and cost-effectiveness.'

Awarded in the consumer electronics category, Simrad's BSM-2 Broadband Sounder module delivers the most detailed mid-water definition and penetrates the deepest waters on the planet to take sonar technology to a whole new level.

Designed with serious sportfishing anglers and dedicated commercial fisherman in mind, for use with Simrad's NSE and NSO multifunction displays, the sonar module delivers five times greater target resolution than comparable offshore performance sounders, with readings possible for depths greater than 3000m (10,000ft).

The BSM-2 also provides enhanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP), similar to the BR24 solid-state radar, and is the first sonar to incorporate Frequency Sweeping Pulse Compression technology – also known as ‘CHIRP' – in a recreational application; producing higher resolution, deeper depths and less noise.

Simrad's NSE multifunction display and NSO Offshore navigation system were also honoured with US-based Motor Boating Magazine's 2011 Best of the Year Award.

The awards add to a long list of accolades for Simrad over the years, with every product from its autopilots through to Broadband Radar attracting the commendation of leading marine organisations all over the world.
