IET - Radar electronics for leisure marine radars

15th July 2021 7:00 pm

A brief look at the recent developments in leisure marine radar technology and its applications. The presentation will cover types of radar, their construction and typical installations.

The technology of the radar sensor is migrating from magnetron transmitters with analogue electronics to sold-state transmitters and receivers with almost all of the radar electronics digital. Both technologies are still applicable. The benefits of the two technologies will be compared.

The radar display for the user, including overlays of chart data and AIS will be shown, emphasising how the information can be used for rapid assessment of collision avoidance, route planning and enhanced situational awareness.
