CHIRP sonar technology can offer enhanced target separation of objects in the water column compared to traditional dual-frequency sounders. Raymarine has brought this technology above the waterline with its Quantum CHIRP radar ($1,599). Much like CHIRP sounders, it uses pulse-compression technology and FLIR's ATX advanced target-separation technology to offer enhanced imaging when operating at both short and long ranges. This compact, Wi-Fi-enabled radar installs with a single power cable (an Ethernet version is also available) and offers a range scale of 18 feet to 24 nautical miles. Quantum's low-power, solid-state transmitter ensures safe emissions, and its low power-consumption levels (17 watts when transmitting and 7 watts in standby mode) make it an interesting consideration for yachts as a backup radar.
