Advanced Sensing Technologies for Custom Applications

Raymarine’s Radar Software Development Kit (SDK) gives developers and OEMs the ability to integrate with leading Raymarine radar platforms including Quantum and Quantum 2 Doppler radars. Raymarine offers a wide range of compact, high-performance radar solutions suitable for manned and unmanned vessels, maritime surveillance systems and other marine-focused applications.

Utilizing the Raymarine SDK, radar data can be viewed, controlled and manipulated on Microsoft Windows-based PC devices. The Raymarine SDK is enabled using a plug-in USB key supplied with the kit.

Quantum CHIRP Radar

Raymarine’s award-winning Quantum radar uses CHIRP pulse compression technology for superior imaging and target detection at both long and short ranges. Quantum radar can be installed in either a wired or wireless configuration utilizing its onboard Wi-Fi access point. Quantum is extremely energy-efficient and lightweight making it an excellent candidate for many remote-sensing applications.

Quantum 2 CHIRP Radar with Doppler

Quantum 2 adds Doppler target tracking to an already impressive list of standard features. Doppler processing allows Quantum 2 to instantly detect moving radar contacts and highlight them on the PPI. This provides instant recognition to radar operators, improves situational awareness, and can dramatically reduce risk of collision when operating in congested waterways.
