Radar detection of small vessels and targets

The VisionMaster FT Radar series from Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine provides innovative marine tools and support for safe navigation and collision avoidance under all maritime conditions. The VisionMaster FT series delivers the industry’s most advanced automatic clutter suppression, making it easier for operators to identify small targets in sea or rain clutter conditions.

The automatic radar plotting (ARPA radar) series fully meets the latest radar performance standards of International Maritime Organization (IMO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). All our products are designed to meet the demands of today’s maritime industry.

Weather-resistant radar scanners

Northrop Grumman Sperry Marine delivers several sizes of radar scanners, including X-Band and S-Band antenna and high-speed turning units. Our series of S-Band radar scanner antennas are the best solution in extreme weather conditions and are provided with both 9ft and 12ft antennas. The X-Band radar scanner incorporates the design for coastal surveillance and is provided in either a 4ft, 6ft or 8ft antenna.

The optional Dual Radar* integrates data from two scanners on a single radar display. The use of Dual Radar configuration eliminates blind arcs and enhances target detection, providing complete situational awareness and peace of mind. By combining inputs from separate radars, a 360-degree picture can be viewed to reveal nearby and far-off targets.

The VisionMaster FT Dual Radar gives you the ability to track targets from both independent radars in the usual way, with the inputs provided on a single screen for improved usability.

Key Benefits of the Dual Marine Radar:

  • No blind arc but 360-degree view on a single screen to enhance awareness and safety
  • Seamless overlap of 2 radars on a single radar display  
  • Control up to two independent radars from a single screen
  • Track targets seamlessly across the two radars
  • Reduce operator workload with a seamless view from two radar heads
  • Any combination of X- and S-band antennas
