The Marconi Predictor is a radar computing and display system. Designed to provide fully automatic plotting of all targets visible on the radar screen. Using electronic storage the watchkeeping officer is freed from manual plot- ting on or off screen. The predictor will show the effects of course change and/or speed change. Target tracks can be presented as true tracks, actual relative tracks, or predicted relative tracks within 10 seconds. All tracks are updated every 10 seconds. Whatever presentation method the watchofficer uses his ship remains at the center of the screen. If sufficient traffic is available training requires only one watch.
