C.A. Richards & Associates, Inc, a Sottomarine Company, is excited to announce an agreement to represent GeoAcoustics Ltd across the 50 United States of America. The new agreement expands on the existing relationship which focused on meeting demand for GeoAcoustics’ innovative hydrographic technology primarily in Gulf States.

GeoAcoustics Ltd builds innovative, high-performance hydroacoustic technologies for the efficient collection of accurate underwater data. The Great Yarmouth, UK-based company’s portfolio offered by CA Richards features dependable, feature-rich and field-proven bathymetric sonars, side-scan sonar and sub-bottom profilers for diverse marine survey and underwater inspection applications. Recent technology developments include AI data processing for the GeoSwath 4 sonar, enabling a quality-controlled live data stream helping surveyors to make better informed decisions on board and reduce time needed in post-processing ashore.

“The partnership between GeoAcoustics and CA Richards secures our ability to meet the needs of marine survey companies and offshore contractors across the whole of the US,” said Richard Dowdeswell, Chief Commercial Officer, GeoAcoustics Ltd. “We’re looking forward to building on this to ensure that their customers can continue to leverage the data quality and workflow benefits that our GeoSwath, GeoPulse and Pulsar technologies unlock, as CA Richards enters a new era under Sottomarine.”
