Marine radars are specific radars used on ships and other vessels. They are used to detect objects in the environment, such as other ships, rocks and islands. This is critical to the safety of the ship and crew, and also helps navigate in poor visibility or weather conditions.
Naval radars work by emitting radio waves that detect and track objects in the environment. The waves are reflected off objects and are then received by the radar. This allows it to determine the distance, speed and movement of objects.
There are different types of marine radars available, such as magnetron radars, pulse radars and doppler radars. Each type has its own unique characteristics and applications. Magnetron radars, for example, are powerful and suitable for long distances, while pulse radars offer higher resolution for short distances. Doppler radars can detect motion of objects and are often used for marine traffic management.
Marine radars also have several display modes to choose from, such as the standard Plan Position Indicator (PPI) display, relative speed cursor (RBL) and True Motion display. These modes help interpret radar images and make responsible navigation decisions.
