The AlphaScan 5900 includes a wide range of scanners. X-band offers greater resolution and detection of smaller targets, but is subject to interference from rain and seas. S-band radar has a longer range and less interference from rain and sea clutter, but has less sensitivity for small targets. Available as a traditional magnetron type or solid state (S-band), low maintenance scanners, various scanner lengths and output power, normal or high speed, many variations are possible, to always have a solution at hand to fit your type of vessel. New in this radar series are the second generation Solid State S-band scanners, available in normal and high speed. This much more air shippable scanner it is smaller and lighter than the original 12ft scanner.
