SPERRY MARINE - Bridgemaster E Radar

The Sperry Marine/Decca BridgeMaster E is a surface search radar introduced in 1999 and designed to provide navigation to commercial and military high speed crafts and vessels. The radar family consists of ATA (Automatic Tracking Aid) and ARPA (Automatic Radar Plotting Aid) series which have been designed to fit into a wide range of naval applications depending on the ship's size and customer requirements. The ARPA and ATA radars feature the ability to track 60 and 40 surface targets respectively at relative speeds of 150 knots.
Many thousands of BridgeMaster E marine radars have been sold to more than 50 navies and coast guards worldwide as well as civilian customers. So far, these radars have proved outstanding at-sea reliability. The Vision clutter suppression system is offered as optional equipment for BridgeMaster E to enhance the radar picture in all weather conditions and close to land. The BridgeMaster E radars use S and X band transceivers and 15, 19, or 23 inches TFT/LCD displays
