Units can distinguish moving targets from landmasses and have dual guard zones with alarm triggering.

Simrad has introduced its Advanced HD Digital Radar Family, which combines high-performance open-array scanners with oceangoing reliability.

The new lineup includes a 4-foot, 10-kW system being promoted for center-console boats, along with a 6-foot, 10-kW version and a 7-foot, 25-kW option for larger vessels.

Features include automatic tune, gain and sea-clutter adjustments, automatic harbor and offshore modes, and dual EBL/VRM. Units can distinguish moving targets from landmasses and have dual guard zones with alarm triggering, as well as tracking of 10 user-selected MARPA targets.

A high-speed heading sensor can be added to enable chart overlay on compatible Simrad NS series multifunction displays.
