Airmar Technology Corp. received an NMEA Product Award at the 2012 National Marine Electronics Association Conference & Expo in Orlando, Fla.

Airmar’s CHIRP (compressed high-intensity radar pulse technology) broadband transducers won in the Marine Specialty category, the company said.

“We are delighted to receive this prestigious award and appreciate the recognition from fellow NMEA members,” Aairmar marketing manager Jennifer Piper said in a statement. “Of the nine contest categories, Marine Specialty had the largest number of entries, making this year’s contest especially competitive.”

Airmar said it is estimated that most major marine electronics manufacturers will incorporate CHIRP into their fishfinder product line by the end of the year.

The company said that when one of its broadband transducers is paired with a broadband fishfinder with receive signal processing, the result is five times greater sensitivity and performance than current fishfinder technology.

Airmar said CHIRP delivers extreme target detail and resolution down to 10,000 feet, as well as precise discrimination between small, closely spaced fish. The company said improved target definition and clarity at low and high frequencies (28kHz–210kHz, with no tuning necessary), as well as the ability to find targets within noise at high speeds, provide customers with serious performance.
