Abstract: Since World War II the U.S. Coast Guard has been sponsoring the development of a new type of radar beacon called ramark. These beacons are used as an aid to marine navigation and supply the radar navigator with information about key points much the same as lights aid visual piloting. They serve a different purpose and operate in a different manner than the conventional transponder or racon beacons.
