Mainly, the technology has been developed by Guidance Marine, a Wärtsilä company.

Moreover, the RS24 radar provides the highest possible resolution images in the vicinity of vessels, in areas that simple radars are not able to penetrate. At the same time, the radar increases situational awareness.

The radar images will be integrated with the onboard Wärtsilä Nacos navigational system for complete coverage.

Since ports around the globe become busier, this increases the possibilities of collision and damage; operators need to be able to see what is close to the ship.

The RS24 radar will be installed on two cruise ships during the first quarter of 2019.

Concluding, the company announced that trials are also being carried out utilising the RS24 for wave detection purposes.
