About US


Committed to our Customers’ Success

Chesapeake Technology was launched with a simple mission – to make it easy to collect and interpret sonar data by making it easy to use our products. This has driven our on-going product enhancements and technology innovations – many of which are ideas submitted by users – and our dedication to provide the best customer service in the industry. We offer custom software and hardware solutions, as well as thought-leading consulting services to the hydrographic survey, marine geophysical, and geological survey industries throughout the world.

Our flagship product, SonarWiz, provides leading-edge sonar data acquisition and processing software for sidescan and sub-bottom sonar systems being used by hundreds of clients worldwide including NAVO, NOAA, USGS, and many of the world’s navies and universities.

Chesapeake Technology, Inc. (CTI) was founded in 1995 in the heart of Silicon Valley by John Gann, who continues to serve as CTO and overall go-to guy for our customers. John travels the world giving at-sea training, meeting with customers to learn how to make our products even better, presenting at conferences, and playing hockey whenever possible.
