Furuno has introduced its DRS6AX ‘X-Class’ Radar, which the manufacturer says brings a refined 6-kW open array to NavNet TZtouch and TZtouch2.

For anglers, the DRS6AX introduces a new Bird Mode that, among other things, Furuno says can discern the movement of individual birds within a flock.

Furuno also says the DRS6AX delivers 50 percent more power-on-target than previous DRS radars, extending the maximum pulse length from 0.8 to 1.2 microseconds.

“At long ranges, you can easily see landmasses in great detail, and the improved short-range detection offers stunning target separation,” Furuno stated in a press release. “Add Fast Target Tracking, where the DRS6AX can detect and display instant target vectors showing heading and speed for up to 30 targets, and you’ve got a radar that truly is in a class of its own.”

Open-array antennas: available models for the DRS6AX come in 3.5-, 4- and 6-foot versions.
