GRAHAMS THOUGHTS...

If you’re familiar with the concept of solid-state radars, you’ll know how fast they are to start up. Unlike the older magnetron radars, solid-state radars have no warm up time and draw very little power, meaning these are ideal for a variety of boats. Another big feature is the integration of Doppler technology, which allows your system to automatically mark approaching vessels as hazards, and vessels heading away from you as safe – resulting in much greater situational awareness. Note: As with most marine radars, you will require a heading sensor on board to use the target tracking and chart overlay functionality.

Description

DRS4D-NXT 24″ Solid State Doppler Marine Radar

The DRS4D-NXT is a feature packed Solid-State Radar with pulse compression, Target Analyzer and Fast Target Tracking utilizing Doppler technology. Combined with Furuno’s exclusive RezBoost technology, the DRS4D-NXT brings you the performance of an open array radar, in a compact 24” radome.

Bird Mode

Featuring a new bird mode, the DRS4D-NXT helps you identify birds gathering around schools of fish at the sea surface. Bird mode automatically adjusts the gain and sea settings for optimal visibility.

RezBoost Beam Sharpening

Furuno’s exclusive RezBoost technology has been incorporated into DRS4D-NXT, to bring you even more impressive performance. When RezBoost is set to MAX, the sharpness equivalent of a 2 degree beam width can be achieved. With RezBoost, you’ll benefit from more detailed targets, with less clutter. With RezBoost, you’ll also be able to see small and highly detailed targets, such as kayaks and dinghies, with clear separation.

Target Analyzer function utilizing Doppler technology spots hazardous targets instantly

Furuno’s DRS4D-NXT radar is the first to feature the new Furuno Target Analyzer function. Targets that are approaching your vessel are automatically marked with a colour to assist you in indentifying when they are hazardous. Green targets are marked as stationary, or moving away from your vessel, whilst red marked targets are moving toward your vessel. The marked targets automatically change colour as targets approach, or move away from your vessel. Furuno Target Analyzer improves your situational awareness and is designed to increase safety by showing you which targets need attention.

Fast Target Tracking

It only takes a few seconds after a target has been selected until a speed and course vector is displayed. With accurate tracking information, estimation of other vessel’s course and speed is greatly simplied. With Fast Target Tracking activated, any vessel approaching yours will automatically display a target vector, as well as sound an alarm*. Up to 100 targets can be displayed simultaneously.
