Target Analyzer and Fast Target Tracking

The Target Analyzer function of Furuno FAR-15×8 Marine Radar displays moving target, stationary targets, rain, sea surface and targets closing in on your vessel in different colors. You can immediately spot hazardous targets directly, simply by the color they are displayed in. Target Analyzer can increase safety as well as improve situational awareness.
