Radar is undoubtedly one of the most essential components of modern navigation. It provides an independent picture of the vessel’s surroundings by day or by night, and in nearly all weather conditions. With the possibilities provided by modern technology, there is a trend to develop additional features on top of the minimum requirements stated in the performance standards, and to combine different systems to create integrated bridges. Consequently, modern radar systems are becoming more complex, and it is becoming more difficult to become familiar with a particular system.
