Broadband 4G™ Radar
Solid state radar with many advantages over old-school pulse radar.
Broadband 4G™ Radar offers all of the benefits of the Broadband 3G™ Radar, including a true 200' working range, plus some spectacular extra features. Broadband 4G has an impressive 50 percent more true range than Broadband 3G. Now you can see crystal clear targets up to 36nm away and inside strong storm cells more than 17nm away.
Broadband 4G Radar is the only dome radar to incorporate Beam Sharpening, which gives an effective azimuth resolution of a 3.5' open array with Target Separation Control for unrivaled clarity in every situation, giving you the confidence to navigate in any state of visibility. It’s capable of displaying any dual range radar combination, as well as 48RPM and up to 20 MARPA targets, which allows unprecedented simultaneous working ranges, anywhere from 200' up to 36nm in 18 range scales. No other radar in the world can do this.
Broadband 4G Radar is the perfect complement to any sailing-specific navigation system, enabling sailors to navigate anchorages and marinas at night more precisely and with increased confidence. Zeus features include weather data overlay, layline tracking, wind history plotting and much more.
- No Main Bang: Revolutionary FMCW technology.
- Lowest Emissions: Broadband Radar is so low in emissions, it beats your mobile phone!
- InstantOn: InstantOn provides an almost instant radar image. No waiting for your radar to warm up before use!
- Maximum Clarity: Broadband Radar’s target separation is unbeatable in a compact radome.
- Beam Sharpening: Broadband 4G Radar is the only dome radar in the world to employ Beam Sharpening, which allows you to control the level of target separation, so you can see the sharpest images possible when you need them most.
- More Range: 18 range scales up to 36 nautical miles. Now you can see crystal clear targets up to 32 nautical miles away and inside strong storm cells more than 17 nautical miles away.
- Dual Range: Capable of displaying Dual Range radar combination when combined with a Zeus system. Monitor targets from 200 feet to 32 nautical miles from a single dome.
