Kelvin Hughes releases new X-band navigation radar transceiver
Kelvin Hughes (Hall B6 Stand 201) has announced the launch its new 12kW X-band navigation radar transceiver at SMM 2016 in Hamburg, Germany.

The developer, manufacturer and supplier of maritime navigation, surveillance and security radar systems said the new commercial shipping radar will target the UK and European market for a start.

Richard Myers, global services manager, told Seatrade Maritime News that the 12kW X-band upmast magnetron radar features a compact and slick design, removing the need for cumbersome wirings with its easy installation.

The commercial shipping X-band series is designed to provide cost effective type approved radar in a lightweight package, meeting IMO requirements.

The compact lightweight design is also easy to install with a single waterproof connector and includes an integral health monitor.
