Target Analyzer™ 

The Target Analyzer™ function displays moving targets, stationary targets, rain, sea surface and targets closing in on your vessel in different colors. Spot hazardous targets directly, simply by their color. Target Analyzer™ can improve situational awareness, hence increasing safety at sea.

Fast Target Tracking™ (TT)

It only takes a few seconds after a target has been selected, that a speed and course vector is displayed. With accurate tracking information, estimation of other vessel's course and speed is made easier.


Automatic Clutter Elimination (ACE) for unprecedented echo clarity

Quickly adjust the radar image with the push of a single button press. When the ACE function is activated, the system automatically adjusts clutter reduction filters and gain control according to the sea and weather conditions selected by the user (calm/rough sea/hard rain).


Customize the display according to your needs

FAR-1513-BB offers impressive customizability and freedom when it comes to display. Choose how you want echoes to be displayed so that you can maximize visibility and efficiency.

User Interface

Easy to operate control unit

Simple and efficient operation is made possible with individual knobs for setting gain/rain/sea clutter suppression, as well as a RotoKey and touch panel. The optional trackball unit, as well as a regular USB mouse, can also be used.


Customizable data display for efficient and simple operation


Data display
Whether it be a close up of approaching targets or target information, you can customize the display freely to show the information you need at hand. Up to four TT targets can be displayed as well as two AIS targets, complete with information.

Close up display (Zoom function)
