Sperry Debuts River Radar

Tuesday, June 18, 2002
Sperry Marine recently unveiled a new generation of flat-screen river radars that is designed to provide significant savings in size and weight for a small, crowded wheelhouse. The new MK6217/9 River Radar, which meets all Rhine River Radar specifications for European inland waterways, features a high-resolution color 18.1-in. (46 cm) TFT flat panel display. The flat-screen display can be table-, bulkhead-, deckhead- or console-mounted. The compact processor unit measures just 3.5 x 9.3 x 11.5 in. The system comes with a choice of 7-ft or 9-ft antenna with two menu-selectable turning speeds. The MK6217/9 processes and displays radar signals with a high degree of accuracy to improve the safety of vessels navigating rivers, channels and narrow waterways. The radar incorporates state-of-the-art interference and clutter rejection, for the clearest possible picture. Standard navigation functions include range scales from 150 m to 64 km, menu-controlled setup and operation, multi-level video and target trails, two independent variable range markers and electronic bearing lines , rate of turn and rudder indicator, ship's profile outline and navigation lines.
