CHARLOTTESVILLE (BNS): Northrop Grumman Corporation on Tuesday introduced a new naval display features for its marine navigation radar systems.

The new naval display features includes dual-radar input, 600-knot target tracking capability, CCTV interface and stabilised sector transmission, according to a Northrop Grumman news release.

The dual-radar configuration permits inputs from two separate asynchronous radar units which will be shown on a single integrated display.

By combining inputs from separate X (I)-band and S (E/F)-band radars, a 360-degree picture can be presented to reveal nearby and far-off targets, and also to eliminate blind arcs.

The radar operator can track targets from both radars, with the inputs correlated to provide a single target on the screen.

The new feature is available with the company's Sperry Marine VisionMaster FT series of naval radars.

"Sperry Marine's BridgeMaster and VisionMaster FT series radar systems are specified as standard shipboard equipment for more than 60 navies and coast guards around the world," said J. Nolasco DaCunha, vice president of Naval Systems International at Northrop Grumman's Naval and Marine Systems Division, as quoted in the company release.

Other features standard in the VisionMaster FT naval radar systems include red first strike for identifying fast-moving targets, helicopter approach sectors, freeze frame for periods of radar silence, station keeping, index lines and target intercept.
