Marine Boat Radar

BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


Marine Radar can be defined in boating terms as an electronic navigation device used to detect other vessels, objects, and surrounding land masses. It makes use of microwaves that are reflected back to the transmitter and can be used for determining the distance and shape of a particular target. Radar is often used in conjunction with other marine electronics such as satellite navigation devices.

Meaning


Radar utilizes a rotating antenna to sweep adjacent areas for objects which are shown on a display screen. It offers a graphic indication of the boat's surroundings. This will allow operators to safely navigate in darkness, fog, and other limited visibility conditions.

Context


There are no operational requirements for recreational boats with regard to radar instrumentation.

Conclusion


Radar is a vital navigation component and should be given careful consideration for all but smaller runabouts and day boats.
