Raytheon Introduces New R61 Rasterscan Radar

Developments in the Raytheon R61 Rasterscan Radar's Interference Rejection, and Rain/Sea Clutter technology have led to even greater reduction of interference from weather and other radars.

R61's advanced video processing circuitry further improves the bright, sharp picture Raytheon radars are known for.

Ideal of workboats, fish boats and other similar vessels, the new 64- mile R61 is described as "a workhorse radar with thoroughbred technology." The unit features supersturdy, reliable construction.

At the same time, the R61 provides an impressive array of capabilities.

Using touch controls, an R61 operator gets alphanumeric readouts of vital information. For example, the Electronic Bearing Line (EBL) and Variable Range Marker (VRM) provide fast, accurate bearing and distance information.

Another important feature, Sea- Guard, warns of collision danger, marks points of intrusion into userselected guard zones, and sounds an alarm.

Raytheon's unique on-screen tuning bar enables the operator to tune the radar simply and quickly.

A "Target Expander" enhances weak signals.

The R61 has a 12-inch diagonal, 512-line high-resolution screen. It comes with a 6-foot or 4-foot antenna, with 1.2-degree or 1.9-degree horizontal beamwidths, respectively.

Raytheon offers a two-year limited parts warranty with one year free labor by any of its U.S. dealers and worldwide service network.
