Abstract:

Sperry Marine introduced the RASCAR (RASterscan Collision Avoidance Radar) in 1987. By early 1989, 250 had been sold and 125 were in service. This article describes features of the equipment and gives high ratings to its performance and ease of use. The article is based on hands-on experience with the installation aboard the NILS DACKE. Systems under development by Sperry Marine are also noted: the Voyage Management Station (VMS) that will turn the radar display into a fuel chart system; the Navigation Workshop, usable as an online system similar to the VMS or as an offline voyage planner and control system; and the SeaNET real-time shipboard data network that will make every detail of every function available at the bridge radar screen.
