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.


Quan­tum CHIRP radar will be avail­able world­wide in the first quar­ter of 2016 through Raymarine’s au­tho­rised net­work of deal­ers and re­tail­ers, start­ing at £1,495 inc VAT. For more de­tails about the Quan­tum CHIRP Radar, visit: www.raymarine. com/Quan­tum
