Raytheon's R70 Series Radars Provide High Level Of Performance

Raytheon's R70 Series radars are ideal for commercial fishing, workboats and yachts. Displays are presented in 16 levels of video on 12- inch CRT screens. Maximum ranges are 48 and 72 miles, depending on the model. Raytheon offers a selection of X-Band or S-Band, 4-kw or 10-kw transceivers, to suit individual requirements. Raytheon's SBand R74 is especially well-suited for use in hostile weather situations and for the detection of birds in many fishing applications.

These medium-sized, professional radars are designed with heavy-duty construction throughout, including a die-cast aluminum front bezel and grip handles. To make operation easy, rotary knobs are combined with a simple keyboard, including four directional keys for rapid cursor control.

Raytheon has developed a unique capability for its SeaGuard zone intrusion alarm. The alarm warns of targets entering or leaving preset boundaries. This added feature is particularly useful in pair trawling to alert fishermen if one vessel in moving out of line; to monitor tow operations; for anchor watch; or for marking surveillance boundaries.
