Ship radar


The "Bridgemaster" (Sperry Marine) ship radar has a transmission power of 25 kW and transmits in the range of 9.4 GHz and a wavelength of 3 cm (X-band radar). At a length of 2.4 m, the applied antenna transmits a radar beam with a horizontal angle of 1° and a vertical angle of aperture of 24°. A range of 1.5 km is used as the standard range for detecting bird migration (i.e. with vertically rotating radar the monitored distance is approx. 3 km).
