RAYMARINE QUANTUM™ WIRELESS CHIRP RADAR
The launch of this new radar from Raymarine was explained in detail at the show.
Quantum’s CHIRP Pulse Compression technology uses multiple compressed, radar pulses with FLIR’s exclusive ATX™ advanced target separation technology to display targets like boats, landmarks, rocks, buoys and weather cells, with unsurpassed resolution and separation quality versus traditional magnetron radars.
In tight quarters, Quantum’s CHIRP technology allows identification of targets as close as 18ft, and offshore Quantum delivers exceptional long-range imagery and accurate target returns.
The unit’s on-board processing also automatically eliminates rain and sea clutter, blocks interference from other radars, and ensures a noise-free, easy to interpret image in congested waterways.
The lightweight design and Wi-Fi connectivity make it easy to install and simple to operate. At only 12lb (5.4 kg), Quantum weighs 50 per cent less than traditional magnetron radars. The solidstate design and highly efficient electronics significantly reduce power consumption, extending vessel battery life too.
