DRS6A-NXT & DRS4D-NXT Solid State Radar


NXT radars are Solid-State Radars utilizing Doppler technology to ensure the safest navigation. The NXT series features Target Analyzer™, Fast Target Tracking™ and Auto Target Acquire function to offer optimal detection and sensitivity of hazardous objects. Combined with RezBoost™ technology, the DRS6A-NXT and DRS4D-NXT have no equal in spotting and tracking targets moving around your vessel efficiently with a high resolution.

 Target Analyzer™ function utilizing Doppler technology spots hazardous targets instantly!


NXT is the first radar in the world to use the new FURUNO exclusive Target Analyzer™ function. Targets that are approaching your vessel automatically change color to help you identify when they are hazardous. Green echoes are targets that stay stationary, or are moving away from you, while red echoes are hazardous targets that are moving towards your vessel. Echoes dynamically change colors as targets approach, or get farther away from your vessel. Target Analyzer™ improves situational awareness and can increase safety by showing you which targets to look out for.

Two approaching targets are depicted clearly in RED when Target Analyzer™ is ON.
When Target Analyzer™ is OFF, it is difficult to identify which targets are approaching.
Hazardous targets are displayed in bright red.

Target Analyzer™ Rain Mode

The Video below shows how effective TargetAnalyzer™ is, even though iit is heavy rain. With Rain mode turned on Rain clutter is shown with blue colors, and TargetAnalyzer™ will show relevant approching targets with red, making them very easy to identify.



RezBoost™ beam sharpening

For the first time, FURUNO's exclusive RezBoost™ technology has been incorporated into one of our Radar units, with impressive performance. When RezBoost™ is set to MAX, the sharpness equivalent of a 2 degree beam width can be achieved. With RezBoost™, you'll see more detailed targets, with less clutter. You will be able to see even small and highly detailed targets such as kayaks and dinghies nicely separated.


 

Bird Mode

NXT features a new bird mode that helps you identify birds gathering around schools of fish at the sea surface. Bird mode adjusts the gain and sea settings automatically for optimal visibility.


 

Fast Target Tracking™

Approaching vessel with target vector It only takes a few seconds after a target has been selected until a speed and course vector is displayed. With accurate tracking information, estimation of other vessel's course and speed is greatly simplied. With Fast Target Tracking™ activated, any vessel approaching yours will automatically display a target vector, as well as sound an alarm*. Up to 100 targets can be displayed simultaneously. *TCPA setting required
