Types of Radars used in ships

Ships rely on S-band and X-band frequency radar system for navigation and detection of incoming ships or land obstacles to avoid a collision. The radars use a rotating antenna to discover the surrounding area of the ship. It can detect targets and display the information on the screen. Radar is an important component of every…

Guided Wave Radar vs. Non-Contact Radar

Non-contact radar is radar that is based on microwave technology that sends the microwave signals through the air and not a medium. On the other hand, Guided Wave Radar instruments uses wave guide “probes” to guide radio waves into a process fluid. Both of these techniques are used to measure the surface level of fluids…
