Raymarine radars are designed to provide you with enhanced situational awareness, helping you navigate safely and detect obstacles, other vessels, and potential hazards on the water. Raymarine offers both open array and dome radar configurations. Open array radars consist of a rotating antenna mounted on a mast, providing longer detection ranges. Dome radars have a compact, all-in-one design suitable for smaller vessels or installations where space is limited.
Raymarine's Quantum 2 Boat Radar offers Doppler radar technology which allows for colour-coded target tracking, making it easier to distinguish moving targets from stationary ones. It can help identify potential collision risks and provide additional information about the target's direction and speed.
Furthermore, Some Raymarine boat radars utilize CHIRP pulse compression technology, which provides enhanced target resolution and improved target separation. This technology allows for better detection of small or closely spaced targets, giving boaters a clearer picture of their surroundings. In addition, many Raymarine radars support dual range functionality, allowing boaters to monitor two distance ranges simultaneously on their displays. This feature is particularly useful for keeping track of close-range obstacles and distant targets simultaneously.
Raymarine radars support MARPA (Mini Automatic Radar Plotting Aid) target tracking, which enables users to track the movement of multiple radar targets. This feature provides valuable information such as target bearing, speed, and closest point of approach (CPA) to aid in collision avoidance. Raymarine radars also seamlessly integrate with Raymarine multifunction displays (MFDs). They can overlay radar images on top of navigational charts, allowing boaters to easily interpret radar targets in relation to their boat's position.
