High Definition Digital Radar: The Right Choice
We've hired leading radar experts to develop Northstar High Definition Digital Radar, an accurate choice for reliable surface detection. Radar's primary uses are vessel detection and collision avoidance, particularly in reduced visibility conditions like darkness, fog and rain. Now this technology is available to you.

High Definition Digital Radar means:
Exceptional detection of small or distant targets, using advanced digital signal processing. Presents targets better and rejects clutter using 10-bit digital Sensitivity Time Control (STC). Screen-clutter from rough water weather is cleared away using sensitivity settings tailored for specific conditions.

Radar Features
With an optional heading sensor, radar brings a wealth of important information to the skipper's attention swiftly and accurately.

Guard-Zone Alarms
If any target detect by the radar enters a user-defined area on the display, the system will alert you to its presence.

Choosing a scanner
Radomes are compact and lightweight, making them ideal for sail boats and small powerboats. Consider a radome when space and power supply is limited.
An open array antenna will deliver better range and detail because of its higher power and narrow beam width.
The effective range of a scanner increases when mounted higher on your boat. The power of a scanner is also an indicator of its range. A scanner's beam width (the angle at which scanner's signal spreads) indicates how good the scanner is at target discrimination - a smaller beam width is better.

Heading Sensors
Heading sensors provide gyro-compensated data for your radar processor. A heading sensor enhances radar image stability, and is needed for chart overlay.
Both of Northstar's radar heading sensors deliver heading data 10 times a second to your display.
Use HS02, with the integrated fluxgate compass, for an all-in-one solution for use in fiberglass vessels.
Use HS03 if you have a steel boat where the fluxgate compass should be located separately, above deck away from the hull.

STC Curves
Digital Sensitivity Time Control (STC) curves reject clutter by setting minimum thresholds that consider return strength and distance.

Color Palettes
Different Color Palettes allow better distinction of target returns, depending on viewing conditions.
