A new type of radar called broadband radar, mainly intended for leisure boats and smaller ships, has been launched on the market. This type of radar differs from traditional radar in that it transmits continuously and not in pulses. It is not compatible with radar beacons and transponders, and does not show racon signals or SART signals (signals from life rafts, for example).
Since the regulations are drawn up so that the different systems will operate together, we can state that this type of radar does not fulfil requirements. If it is desirable that a radar works with other systems, a traditional magnetron type should be used.
