FLIR introduces Raymarine Magnum high-performance marine radar

(WILSONVILLE, Ore.) — FLIR Systems Inc. has launched the Raymarine Magnum high-performance open array radar featuring advanced bird mode and beam sharpening technology. Including many of the same radar technologies trusted by the United States Coast Guard, Magnum offers enhanced target tracking, reliable performance, and superior image detail packaged in a sleek open array pedestal built to withstand the harsh marine environment.

Magnum is available in 4 kilowatt (kW) or 12-kW power output options, with either a 4-foot or 6-foot antenna array. Magnum offers a maximum target identification range up to 96 nautical miles (nm) for 12-kW models – ideal for bluewater vessels – and up to 72 nm for 4-kW models. Magnum is compatible with Raymarine’s Axiom and Axiom Pro multifunction navigation displays (MFD) running LightHouse 3, and with LightHouse 2-based Raymarine MFDs.

Featuring an advanced automatic bird mode that gives captains the ability to see birds with greater accuracy at distances of up to 10 nm, Magnum helps anglers locate schooling baitfish faster, which helps save fuel. Magnum radar also adds Raymarine beam sharpening technology, delivering better than 1 degree bearing resolution for more detailed target separation, map-like coastal detail, and superior long-range performance. Additionally, Magnum’s enhanced mini-automatic radar plotting aid (MARPA) offers accurate and reliable target tracking when navigating busy waterways.
