Kelvin Hughes, the marine division of Smiths Industries Limited, has recently introduced a unique form of marine radar presentation. Known as Situation Display, it presents a visual representation of the situation exactly as it would appear to the navigator looking out of the bridge window. All moving targets within a selected range scale are automatically tracked; they can be distinguished from the stationary, and their aspects, courses and speeds are readily assessable by means of a tail that remains on the display. Stationary objects move over the screen, but do not leave a tail, thus making it extremely easy for the navigator to distinguish between the two. A description of the operation of the unit is included in the discussion.
