R2Sonic was founded in February 2006 by three veteran underwater acoustical engineers; Jens R. Steenstrup, Mark Chun and Kirk Hobart; with the mission to utilize their experience to bring high quality, leading edge underwater acoustic products to the private and public sectors with a focus on customer needs.

R2Sonic brings pioneering values to the industry. From the beginning, the founders understood that in order to be successful in the dynamic underwater acoustics market, they needed to deliver truly innovative products at compelling value and quality. The Sonic series of broadband/wideband Multibeam Echosounders represent that innovative spirit with unique technology that provides superior performance and flexibility in a reliable, light weight, power efficient, and space saving package through a business model radically different from the industry norm.
