Display of Radar Transponder
SART (Search and Rescue Radar Transponder) is life preserving device approved by
GMDSS which is used for locating survivors in the event of a disaster or distress. SART
operates in the 9GHz frequency band. When it receives a radar signal (interrogating
radio wave) of 9GHz transmitted by a rescue ship or aircraft radar, SART transmits a
series of respouse signals to the searchers to indicate the distress position.
In order to see the SART or radar beacon mark on the radar screen.
① RANGE SCALE
② SEA CLUTTER control
③ AUTO SEA
④ TUNE control
When above settings ①to ⑥ are made to display SART signals, objects around
the own ship will not appear on the radar screen, so perform thorough visual
monitoring of the sea area around the own ship to avoid any collision or stranding.
Further, when more than one radar systems are mounted, while using a 9GHz
band radar for searching SART signals, be sure to use another radar as an
ordinary radar to perform monitoring of objects around the own ship to avoid any
collision, check of the position of the own ship to avoid any stranding, and so on.
