Starpath Radar Trainer 3

This interactive radar simulator and on-line tutorial will increase the safety and efficiency of your radar watch many fold. Originally designed for boaters new to radar, it is so realistic and so versatile that it is also used by navies, coast guards, and navigation schools around the world. (The first version of this program was the first PC software ever approved by the USCG for official radar endorsements.) 

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. 

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 with on-line tutorials (prepared as MS WinHelp files) which use built-in traffic patterns in a very convenient and versatile radar simulator.

Training features include the ability to:

  • Control course and speed of all vessels
  • View target vessel radars at any time
  • View Optional trace mode
  • Call up closest-point-of-approach (CPA) data for any target
  • Use built-in calculator to find CPA from ranges and bearings
  • Vary elapsed time rate for very convenient study
  • View interactive demo targets linked to tutorials
  • Run built-in training drills with random targets which are new on every run . You can also set up your own target vessel traffic to navigate through.
