Advanced Clutter Suppression
VisionMaster FT Radars incorporate ClearVision as a standard feature. This sophisticated automatic clutter suppression technology makes it easier for watchstanders to identify small weak targets in the presence of sea or rain clutter without manually adjusting gain or clutter controls.
VisionMaster FT Radars automatically acquire and track up to 100 targets at relative speeds up to 150 knots. Targets can be acquired by either two guard zones or an operator-configured footprint area. AIS-selected target acquisition (up to 100 targets) is also provided as an option.
VisionMaster FT Radars provide digital controlled interswitching to interface up to six transceivers to up to six displays.
The new VisionMaster FT workstations are fully compatible with BridgeMaster antenna and transceiver configurations, and can easily be retrofitted with existing BridgeMaster installations. A full stand-alone console or a kit for installation of the electronics in existing cabinetry is available.
Ease of Installation
The VisonMaster FT Radars are designed for easy low-cost installation and commissioning. A serial data format is used to communicate between the transceiver and workstation, minimizing cable runs. Commissioning is accomplished through a series of intuitive full-screen menu prompts.
Dual-channel capability integrates data from two transceivers for display at a single screen, providing unsurpassed situational awareness.
