TerraSond has been selected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to provide hydrographic surveying services anywhere in the U.S under a new five-year contract, the company announced today.

Under the new contract beginning in 2015, TerraSond will provide comprehensive, modern hydrographic surveys in assigned areas to support NOAA’s nautical charting mission, which includes the updating of charts in critical areas for navigation safety.

TerraSond has been providing hydrographic survey services continuously for NOAA since 1998 under consecutive multi-year contracts. During this time, TerraSond has completed more than 79 separate surveys from the Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic, with three additional surveys currently underway in 2014.

TerraSond said it has surveyed, processed and delivered to NOAA datasets covering more than 4,500 square nautical miles of seafloor utilizing a wide range of technologies and vessels.
