Humminbird introduces compact radar module

Wednesday, January 04, 2017

RACINE, WI  – Humminbird® announces the introduction of a new compact solid state radar module, complete with CHIRP pulse compression technology for outstanding radar imaging at short and long ranges. The new CHIRP Radar offers exceptional target separation technology to display approaching weather, boats, rocks, buoys and landmarks with impressive resolution.

CHIRP Pulse Compression uses multiple radar pulses for increased target separation and detection, identifying targets with improved resolution over traditional magnetron radars, and optimized interference rejection. This translates to better situational awareness in low-visibility conditions. Track weather, vessels, obstacles, and monitor birds with amazing definition.

“Humminbird is excited to bring anglers and boaters the next generation of radar technology,” says Humminbird Brand Manager, Ray Schaffart. “Our new CHIRP Radar allows for improved navigation, and gives anglers an upper hand for monitoring birds and floating obstacles, often the sentinels of sought-after gamefish.”

Boaters will discover that Humminbird CHIRP Radar offers a compact footprint, installs easily and boots quickly for immediate use. It can also be paired with compatible Humminbird equipment to serve as a great navigational and safety addition.
