Radar Trainer

Real marine digital radar, properly modified to teach the operation, installation and maintenance of a radar system


Radar Trainer

This Radar trainer is designed to study radar technologies and systems used in maritime navigation.

All devices are of professional type.

The Radar Trainer features an up-todate real marine digital radar, properly modified to teach the operation, installation and maintenance of a radar system


The trainer consists of a main unit, including:

  • Mimic panel with the functional diagram of the radar and
    the test point on the most significant signals
  • Display unit contains radar control and management; components and circuits are completely visible
  • Screen displays the information received and processed by the radar system
  • Radar Image Simulator generates a radar image with moving targets, thus accurately reproducing the operation of an outdoor scanner unit;
  • Fault simulator

Training Program:

  • Introduction to radar techniques
    • Incident and reflected wave
    • Pulse duration/repetition frequency ratio
    • Power/range ratio
    • Continuous-wave (CW) radar
    • Radar equation

Scanner Unit (M702-SU/EV)

  • The Scanner unit is a real radar outdoor unit including transmission and receiving circuits and slot antenna (for outdoor use) or dummy load (for indoor use)

Electronic Compass (M702-C/EV)

  • That supplies information on navigation direction and North

GPS Receiver (M702-G/EV)

  • That supplies information on geographic position
