Big radar performance and features are available for any size boat and budget with the SI-TEX T-760 and T-761. A vertically oriented slim case boasts advanced touch screen technology and a host of professional features. Powerful 4kW output ensures superior target acquisition and tracking.
The T-760 Series case measures only 5.4" W X 8.9" H X 3.5" D. Yet, this system boasts a long list of professional-grade features, including powerful 4kW output, up to 24nm range, multi-speed antenna rotation, standard 50-target AIS tracking capability and standard 10-target MARPA - features often associated with larger, costlier systems. Control of all these features is achieved via the T-760's touch screen LCD display and single rotary encoder dial, for simple, intuitive operation.
The series includes the T-760, equipped with an 18-inch compact radome antenna for solid performance in a wide range of conditions and range scale choices from 1/8th nm to 24nm. Both the T-760 and T-761 feature powerful 4kW transmitters, ensuring accurate detection and presentation of targets large and small. Both models also offer multi-speed antenna rotation (16/27/36/48rpm) for optimum target detection and tracking over a range of boat speeds.
Among many other notable standard features of the T-760 Series are Relative Motion, True Motion, North-Up, Head-Up and Course-Up presentation modes, Auto or Manual Sea/Rain Clutter modes, 11 Trail Indication settings (including Off and Continuous), and more. With input from a SI-TEX Metadata AIS module (or other AIS receiver), the T-760 Series can track up to 50 AIS targets simultaneously for enhanced navigational safety in crowded waterways. With input of bearing, ship's speed and lat/lon data, the T-760 Series empowers navigators with professional MARPA tracking of up to 10 targets at distances up to 20nm.
In the SI-TEX tradition, the T-760 Series radar is ruggedly built to withstand harsh conditions at sea on commercial as well as recreational vessels. SI-TEX's two-year limited warranty and Long Island, New York-based service department are the navigator's assurance of reliable performance and long-term satisfaction.

Having just wrapped up its ninth year, the Boise River Watershed Watch program is an increasingly popular citizen science program in Boise, Idaho. It takes interested volunteers and joins them with expert scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) who teach them about the river’s health and sampling water quality using transparency tubes, dip nets and chemical test kits. “Our focus is to educate folks on the parameters that we measure, to give them an idea of the river’s health,” said Tim Merrick, public information officer at the USGS’ Idaho Water Science Center. “So they can collect data on the river’s conditions and get plugged in.Read More
Researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California - San Diego have designed and built a diver-operated underwater microscope to study millimeter-scale processes as they naturally occur on the seafloor. The research team has observed coral turf wars, coral polyp “kissing” and much more using the new microscopic technology. Many important biological processes in the ocean take place at microscopic scales, but when scientists remove organisms from their native habitats to study them in the lab, much of the information and its context are lost. In a quest to overcome this challenge, Scripps oceanographers developed the new type of underwater microscope to image marine microorganisms in their natural settings without disturbing them.Read More
Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the rivers that flow into it are important sources of water to Chesapeake Bay, popular recreation sites and the targets of an ambitious clean-up plan. But the city has for some time lacked an environmental monitoring system for tracking water quality in the harbor continuously. That is about to change, thanks to a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It will lead to the new installation of a suite of sensors that will provide the public and scientists with the first comprehensive, real time look at water quality in the harbor.Read More
