gives you so much
Direct daylight viewing without hoods or curtains.
Only Mariners Pathfinder® 12 and 16-inch Radars can be viewed directly in all ambient light conditions, even bright daylight. A welcome change for daytime watches. No more hoods, curtains, or sore eyes. No more interrupted vision because of dark-to-light eye adjustment.
Moreover, two or more members of a watch can view the scope simultaneously.
Two-level video enhances targets and minimizes clutter.
All 12 and 16-inch Mariners
Pathfinder® Radars feature
Raytheon's exclusive two-level digitized video-enhancement. As a result, larger and taller targets are displayed even more brilliantly than smaller or lower targets. The two-tone "three- dimensional" effect is both remarkable and useful. Tall buildings, vessel superstructures, and similar targets are clearly defined for easy identification.
With two levels of video, rain and sea clutter appear at a lower signal level than targets.
This improves the effectiveness of clutter suppression circuits and increases target definition.
Interference rejection reduces noise, improves contrast, and provides positive after-glow trails.
Raytheon's remarkably effective "sweep-comparison" interference rejection gives you a picture that is free of RF interference and noise.
Contrast is improved, especially for weak targets. Most important, moving targets leave well defined after-glow trails for positive assessment of surrounding traffic.
Accurate, digital readout ranging out to 64 miles.
Raytheon's Variable Range
Marker gives continuous digital readouts from 0 to 64 miles.
Automatic intensity control increases scope life.
