Sperry Marine Introduces New River Radars

Monday, May 13, 2002
Sperry Marine, a unit of Northrop Grumman Corporation, has unveiled a new generation of flat-screen river radars that provide significant savings in size and weight for installation in 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. TFT (spell out) flat panel display. Easily installed, 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 (90 x 235 x 293 mm. The system comes with a choice of 7-ft (2.1m) or 9-ft (2.7m) 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 150m to 64km, 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.
