Raymarine announced that is introducing a new line of open-array radars called Cyclone at FLIBS this week.
Cyclone radars are available in 3-, 4- and 6-foot arrays with two high-power output options for each size. All models integrate with the company’s Axiom, Axiom+, Axiom Pro and Axiom XL multifunction displays.
“We wanted to push the boundaries on what was possible for such an important system component,” Gregoire Outters, general manager for Raymarine at Teledyne FLIR, said in a statement. “With Cyclone, we are disrupting the radar category and giving boaters an entirely new level of situational awareness on the water.”
Cyclone is engineered for a wind rating of more than 100 knots. A 60-rpm rotational speed delivers 360-degree awareness and tracking of up to 100 distinct ARPA targets in real-time.
A Bird Mode identifies sea birds to help anglers locate fish.
Retail pricing ranges from $7,000 to $9,750.
