Thales I-Master radar gets new maritime mode
[Johannesburg, 23 July 2014] -
Thales announced today at Farnborough International Airshow 2014 that its I-Master radar is now available with a Maritime Moving Target Indication (MMTI) mode. The new maritime capability, enabled through a software package, can be used simultaneously with the existing Ground Moving Target Indication (GMTI) and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) modes.* Maritime Moving Target Indication (MMTI) mode tracks small, fast-moving craft to larger, slower vessels, in all weather conditions, day and night.
* MMTI mode adds to the already best-in-class Ground Moving Target Indication (GMTI) and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) modes.
* I-Master is an easy-to-use, 360º radar, in a 15-inch gimbal unit weighing less than 30kg.The choice of modes in a single sensor, together with its small form factor and high-performance capability, makes I-Master ideally suited for a wide range of manned and unmanned platforms.
