R5000 X- and S-Band Radar

Simrad R5000 radar systems are available in a range of configurations to meet the requirement for an IMO type-approved X-Band or S-Band radar system aboard CAT 1(H) and CAT 2(H) SOLAS vessels. A modular design makes it easy to create a single or multi-radar system for commercial vessels of any size and type.

Type-Approved X-Band and S-Band Radar Solutions

X-Band radar delivers high-resolution coverage with optimal target separation.We offer type-approved X-Band radar solutions for use aboard CAT 1 and CAT 2 SOLAS vessels, including high speed craft (HSC). S-Band radar serves as a secondary system aboard SOLAS vessels of 3,000 GT and above, and offers superior target detection to X-Band radar in poor weather conditions such as rain or fog.

Easy to Learn and Operate

Our R5000 systems are designed for ease of use, and feature a modern interface with intuitive keypad and trackball controls. Widescreen displays give operators constant access to key information, alerts, and settings without distracting from the central PPI. The same interface is used across our complete series of X-Band and S-Band solutions, offering a consistent experience for operators of multi-radar systems.

Simple and Flexible Installation

Each of our modular systems is based on the R5000 radar processor: a high performance ‘black-box’ system that connects to the radar transceiver via a thin and easy-to-route Ethernet cable. Multiple R5000 processors can be networked together to create multi-radar systems, and to provide access to radar from multiple stations. Any networked station can control any connected radar system, offering both flexibility and redundancy.
