Frequency-agile Radar Beacon

The RBM4 is a latest-generation (frequency-agile) Radar Beacon, which works in the marine X and S radar bands, providing an important information to mariners under whatever meteo-rological conditions

The RBM4 incorporates advanced electronic technology components from radar systems, applied to navigation aids, such as programmable logic and flexible circuit antenna arrays.

The Racon actively answers all active radars in the vicinity with a user programmed Morse code which identifies its location by appearing on the radar display.

Designed according to:

. RO101 IALA Recommendation – Marine Radar Beacons (RACONS).

. Recommendation ITU-R M.824-4 of the International Telecommunications Union – Technical parameters of radar beacons (RACONS)

. and IMO Standards
