Simrad Broadband 4G™ Radar

  • Simrad Broadband 4G™ is the first dome radar to employ Beam Sharpening. This technology enables a new feature called Target Separation Control, which improves the Azimuth resolution, or effective antenna horizontal beam width, up to double the resolution of any 18-inch dome radar. This is the equivalent of a three and a half foot open array radar.

    Simrad Navico
  • Broadband 4G™ Radar has an impressive 50% improvement in range and target detection capability, with a new 36nm range and 18 range scales to accomodate the increased performance.

    • Beam Sharpening with Target Separation Control (Beam width with target separation on MAX is 2.6°)
    • Long Range performance
    • Dual range anywhere from 200' to 36nm
    • Up to 36rpm at less than 1nm
    • Directional Clutter rejection and Sidelobe suppression
    • FMCW technology with inherent LPI
    • Extremely low emissions
    • InstantOn™
    • Improved Range Performance with Noise Rejection Control
      Broadband 4G™ Radar uses advanced levels of Digital Signal Processing to reduce the amount of noise picked up by the radome's surroundings. Users can choose the levels of Noise Rejection via an onscreen menu and decide between LOW or HIGH rejection to customise their views (displays without Noise Rejection Control automatically default to High, in this case Target Separation will also be High).
    • Noise Rejection Control increases the Broadband 4G Radar range by up to 50% and also increases target detection sensitivity.
    • Dual Range with Advanced MARPA, High Speed
      Broadband 4G™ Radar is capable of simultaneous Dual Range operation from a single dome, allowing 10 MARPA targets on each side of a split screen. This allows unprecedented independent working ranges from 200ft right up to 36 nautical miles. Up to 48rpm high speed operation is available for single range operation at less than 1nm.
    • Weather Detection
      Broadband 4G™ Radar benefits from increased weather detection of around 10% when compared to Broadband 3G™ Radar. In on-water testing, Broadband Radar has detected strong rain cells in Florida, USA more than 17nm away.
    • Improved Sidelobe Clutter Rejection
      Broadband 4G™ Radar has improved sidelobe clutter rejection for large targets, such as tankers and tall buildings on the coastline. In addition, directional sea clutter processing improves the ability to see smaller targets in heavy sea states.
    • Small Target Detection at 3nm Range
      The 3nm range is especially important in the transition one from short to longer range radar performance. Broadband 4G™ Radar allows the clear detection of individual buoys, channel markers and coastline, while avoiding the sidelobe projections and target stretching that is common with pulse radar.

Simrad TX25s Open Scanner

  • OHD Digital radars ensure exceptional detection of small or distant targets,using advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP). They present targets more clearly and reject clutter using 10-bit digital radar video sampling and Sensitivity Time Control (STC). Screen-clutter in any weather is virtually eliminated allowing a clear, accurate and easy to interpret image.

    • Color Palettes
      Different color palettes are provided to suit users tastes as well as improve viewing in different lighting conditions. In addition, our HD Digital radars automatically adjust color gradients on distant targets for better target definition. This is especially useful when looking at storm centers.
    • Guard-Zone Alarms
      Easy to use guard zone areas can be defined by the user. This allows the mariner to maintain a radar watch in specific zones. Any radar return or target in that area will trigger an alert on the radar system.

Argus X-Band Radar System

  • The Argus X-Band is a state of the art professional X-band radar including 6 and 9 foot antenna options* and up-mast transceiver in both 12kW and 25 kW. Thanks to the modular design, they can either be assembled to form a stand-alone display cabinet, or be flush mounted into a mechanical bridge console.

    The standard configuration always includes full ARPA, AIS and an electronic built-in interswitch for dual radar installations.

    Simrad Navico
  • The X-Band Radar shares the majority of the modular components with the S-Band Argus Radar. The wide screen monitors, keyboard and processor boxes are the same. This makes installation simple and also reduces the amount of spares that need to be kept onboard. Installation activities are further simplified by the fact that there is a simple direct coupling between the transceiver, the rotary joint and the antenna -this also minimises the RF loss between the transceiver and antenna, so increases overall performance. Like the S-Band, the interface with the console uses a single connector ended cable that allows radar controlling and tuning remotely from the radar display without having to open the radar case.

    The Argus X-Band System comes with a performance monitor, keyboard, core unit and includes 100 target ARPA plus 300 AIS targets -there are no hidden costs.

  • Simrad is currently the only manufacturer who can offer X-Band, S-Band and Broadband.

    Adding a heading input from an autopilot system or dedicated sensor will allow the radar image to be overlaid on the chart. Targets can be interpreted instantly with respect to chart information such as navigation aids and coastlines.

    *Note: a 12ft antenna option is available and this requires a different up-mast transceiver.

  • State of the art professional X-band radar including 6 or 9 foot antenna and up-mast transceiver in both 12kW and 25 kW.

    • Shared components with Argus S-Band -reduce onboard spares and assures availability with our world-wide after sales and service network
    • Available in 12kW and 25kW versions
    • Standard configuration includes performance monitor, 100 target ARPA plus 300 AIS targets - no hidden costs
    • Modular and solid state construction for ease of maintenance and servicing
    • Low noise amplifier providing a reduced overall noise figure
    • Separate processor, monitor and operation panel
    • IMO approved
    • Seamless use of up to four antennas combining X and S band with interswitching capability
    • Performance monitor included
    • 19", 23" or 26" widescreen LCD TFT desk top or flush mounting monitors
    • Optional special application add-ons: Oil Spill, Small Target Detection, and Ice Detection
  • Ice Detection

    For vessels operating in low temperature environments, purchasing the Ice Detection unlock key helps reduce any potential risk of serious incidents in Arctic waters. This special application supports both strategic route planning and tactical ice avoidance.

    The reflectivity properties of different objects (or surfaces) will be displayed on screen as different colours. Sea water, grease ice, firstyear ice and in general low radar reflectivity areas are represented with a shade of colour from black through to green, while land, old rough ice, vessels etc. are represented by a shade of colour from green through to red. The Ice Detection unlock key will assist the ships navigators to set a course that will follow safety routes for significant time savings and to avoid damage to the ship, ultimately increasing operational profits.

  • Radar Approvals

    Both the Argus X-Band and S-Band radars meet and even exceed IMO regulations and Solas V minimum carriage requirements as follows:

    • All ships of 300 gross tonnage and upwards and passenger ships, irrespective of size, should be fitted with a 9 GHz X-band Radar.
    • All ships of 500 gross tonnage and upwards should have an automatic tracking aid.
    • All ships of 3000 gross tonnage and upwards should have a 3 GHz S-band radar or where considered appropriate by the administration a second 9 GHz X-band radar, functionally independent of those referred to in point 1.

Argus S-Band Radar System

  • The Argus S-Band Radar is perfect for vessels over 3000 gross tonnes who require an S-Band radar (3 GHz radar) as part of their carriage requirements.

    The S-Band rounds out the Argus Radar portfolio and completes the Argus offering to reach more vessels. Simrad is currently the only manufacturer who can offer X-Band, S-Band and Broadband.
