Test procedures and acceptance criteria for the marine radars (IMO radars) are specified by the international standard IEC62388. IEC62388 has test items related to radar performance requirement in it. Detection ability tests, which are some of the radar performance tests, are needed to carry out under actual condition, using the specified targets by IEC62388, as far as possible.
As one of our project “Development of a radio equipment testing method”, NICT has been developing the performance testing method for the Marine Radar. Summary and outcome of this project is explained.
