Raymarine Quantum is a solid-state, marine radar which returns short and long range images and features wi-fi connectivity.
The Raymarine Quantum Wireless radar with Chirp pulse compression technology has just been introduced by Flir as industry’s first recreational marine radar dome . It aims to set a new standard among the compact, solid-state radars delivering superior radar imaging on both long and short ranges.
Quantum’s CHIRP Pulse Compression technology uses multiple compressed, radar pulses with Flir’s exclusive ATX advanced target separation technology to display targets like boats, landmarks, rocks, buoys, and weather cells with improved resolution and separation quality versus traditional magnetron radars. In tight quarters Quantum’s CHIRP technology allows identification of targets with a blind spot of just 18 feet, while in deep sea offshore Quantum delivers exceptional long range imagery and accurate target returns. Quantum’s on-board processing also automatically eliminates rain and sea clutter, blocks interference from other radars, and ensures a noise-free, easy to interpret image in congested waterways.
Raymarine Quantum, nice and easy
Quantum’s lightweight design and wi-fi connectivity make it easy to install and simple to operate. Weighing only 5.4 kg Quantum is 50% lighter than traditional magnetron radars, and breaks new ground with wi-fi networking to Raymarine multi-functional devices, MFDs, making installation much easier and eliminating the need for additional radar cabling or interface boxes. Raymarine Quantum radar is available from the first quarter of 2016, through the authorized dealer network, at an indicative price of € 1495 + taxes.
