HHI take the wraps off the latest in marine radar

Hyundai Heavy Industries said it has successfully developed the next-generation marine radar.

The radar, developed in conjunction with 10 organizations including the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute and the Korea Marine Equipment Research Institute after three years of research and development, has adopted a solid state power amplifier.

It is capable of detecting material as small as 70 centimeters (27.5 inches) material 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) away from the ship even on rainy days.

The lifespan of the power amplifier, which is the core component of marine radar, is 50,000 hours, about 16 times longer than existing power amplifiers.

The company said marine radar, which can also be used in the aviation industry, will be commercialized in 2015.
