What Lies Ahead for Sonar Technology

With the changes in technology over the past five to eight years reaching beyond any ones expectations; one has to wonder what lies ahead! We have seen Lowrance bring bottom imaging and clarity to levels we would have never expected and never seen before, but there is more to come as I believe we are just getting started. There is certainly more to come and I believe it lies in the future of what is being referred to as CHIRP technology.

CHIRP technology is short for "compressed high intensity radar pulse," a technology that is adding clarity and eliminating clutter on your sonar better than anything we have seen. It is the future and what we are use to as HDS technology I believe will soon become the past as we progress into the future of bottom imaging and fish finding. CHIRP technology and the new CHIRP units "scan a broad range of frequencies to up the ante in sensitivity, target separation, noise rejection and even ease of use." The technology we use today is great and certainly effective but as we all know you're screen is covered with clutter and as you increase the sensitivity the clutter increases with it; CHIRP technology will reduce the clutter substantially and increase your ability to see fish in heavy grass or hugging the bottom in deep water as it has a wide range of frequencies and allows you to view from 50kHz to 800kHz increasing the clarity at different depths and increased boat speeds.

What lies ahead as Lowrance refines the CHIRP technology I believe will be increased screen sizes and down imaging that will be clearer than any technology we have today that will once again raise the bar to all of Lowrance competitors. We will be enamored by the clarity, speed and increased sensitivity at which CHIRP technology will bring to the avid fisherman, as the current prices for CHIRP technology are extremely reasonable and are affordable to us all. I believe what lies ahead is not limited at all, use your imagination and I think you will be able to view in your mind what is next!
