German navigation system manufacturer Raytheon Anschütz reports that its NautoScan NX (NSX) network radar transceivers have exceeded 100 installations. 

With the launch of Raytheon Anschütz’s new NSX radar transceivers, state-of-the-art network radar technology has replaced the analog data transmission alternative. Now, radar status and video are generated in the transceiver, shared by a digital interface and distributed through a redundant Dual Gigabit LAN to an unlimited number of PCs – a unique and patented feature of the new NSX radar. 
After the initial presentation of the NSX radar, on shore and at sea testing prior to the start of production indicated that the use of state-of-the-art technology simplified integration onboard and also validated that the innovative raw data processing led to improved radar video and greater flexibility in signal processing.
One of the long-term sea trials was conducted aboard the container feeder Vera Rambow. With regard to the new radar’s performance, Captain Jürgen Rambke stated, “The new radar is a significant step forward in radar technology. A brilliant radar video allows me to detect even the tiniest targets along the track.”
