Broadband Radar claims:
– Instant on (as compared to normal radar that takes 2-3 minutes to power up)
– Five times the sea clutter rejection
– No harmful radiation
– Transmits at less than 1/20,000th the power of conventional radar. Much less power usage overall.
– Superior target definition and target seperation
My primary interest is if this could be used to supplement my existing radar, primarily focused on short-range object detection. As we travel through the Pacific NW and Alaska, there are plenty of logs, crab pots, and fishing nets. I’m very interested in anything that improves my chances of spotting them.
Apparently the first units won’t be available until April, which is too late for my boat. I’ll email the company and see if test units are available….
