|Navico’s Broadband 4G Radar signals death of pulse|

Navico hopes to change marine navigation forever with its new Broadband 4G Radar, bringing with it the death of the traditional magnetron pulse radar.
Navico’s latest radar boasts a range of 36 nautical miles, high resolution and clutter reduction to deliver crystal clear images, InstantOn technology, low power consumption with emissions lower than one-fifth of that from a mobile phone, along with simple installation and ease of use. Broadband 4G Radar also features Beam Sharpening, Target Separation Control, Dual Range Radar and high-revolution speed.
Broadband 4G is the first dome radar in the world to use Beam Sharpening, a technology that significantly improves the azimuth resolution – or effective horizontal beam width of the radar – to provide the best target resolution of any dome radar available. Target Separation Control allows users to adjust the levels of target separation according to their needs and, coupled with Beam Sharpening, can provide resolution up to the equivalent of a one-metre open array radar.
When Broadband 4G is combined with, for example, the Simrad NSE, Dual Range Radar offers the ability to monitor a buoy at close quarters while simultaneously keeping track of coastal projections at 36nm away. Broadband 4G Dual Range Radar operation also allows up to 10 MARPA targets in each split radar screen with independent controls – for a total of 20 tracked targets. Pre-defined ‘Offshore’ and ‘Harbour’ modes provide hands-off operation on all ranges without the need for special knowledge or radar tuning, giving most boaters the confidence of a highly-trained radar user.
