Abstract: It is common knowledge that marine radars are required to display moving and fixed echoes at the greatest possible range under all weather conditions and to provide the navigator with adequate time in which to evaluate the situation and plan evasive action. With the high speed and momentum of modern ships it has become more and more evident that there is a need for the navigator to be better assisted in his task of correctly and prompty interpreting the radar data displayed, evaluating the situation and, if necessary, planning corrective action.
