This program was designed for those who are brand new to radar, but it is so realistic and so versatile that it is also used by navies, coast guards, merchant marine, and navigation schools around the world. The first version of this program was the first PC software ever approved by the USCG for use in certified radar endorsement schools.
Just a few hours practice with the Radar Trainer will make a world of difference to the anxiety level experienced when you first encounter a radar target bearing down on you in the fog. Practice with radar navigation using its realistic simulated land images to learn how to negotiate tricky entrances to harbors in the fog.
This is an all new version of a program that has been in use around the world since 1990. It teaches all aspects of radar use including radar navigation and piloting using realistic land simulations with thorough in-line tutorials along with all the features of ver 2 to master collision avoidance using built-in traffic patterns and chart scenarios in very convenient and versatile radar simulators.
