Furuno’s DRS6A-NXT Solid-State Radar

A look at Furuno’s DRS6A-NXT Solid-State Radar.

Furuno’s NXT radars are Solid-State Radars utilizing Doppler technology to ensure the safest navigation. The NXT series features Target Analyzer™, Fast Target Tracking™ and Auto Target Acquire function to offer optimal detection and sensitivity of hazardous objects. Combined with RezBoost™ technology, the NXT Radars have no equal in spotting and tracking targets moving around your vessel. The DRS6A-NXT is a Solid-State Radar with pulse compression and Doppler frequency shift sensing technology, built into your choice of a 3.5ft, 4ft, or 6ft open array. This “NXT” (read “next”) generation Radar is designed for use with both NavNet TZtouch and TZtouch2 MFDs. The DRS6A-NXT is packed with new features, but perhaps the most innovative and revolutionary is called “Target Analyzer”, facilitated by Furuno’s Doppler technology. The Doppler “Target Analyzer” will automatically change the color of targets approaching your boat to clearly show any hazards. Green echoes are stationary targets, land, or approaching targets moving at a velocity of less than 3 knots. Echoes dynamically turn red when targets are approaching your vessel at a speed of 3 knots or faster. It works the same when you are following another vessel. If the target is getting closer at a speed of 3 knots or more, the echo will be depicted in red on the screen. Incredibly, “Target Analyzer” works independently of one’s own ship speed!
