    Holy cow — a 250W Furuno solid state NXT radar, more details here:

    250w in the commercial market is hardly new, SharpEye S-Band from Kelvin Hughes has been 200w since its introduction back in 2007.
    Also X-Band models of SharpEye are now > 300w output. https://www.kelvinhughes.com/maritime/commercial-ships/navigation-radar#specifications

    The key difference is the amount of pulse compression Furuno offer is quite low in comparison (meaning worse target detection in clutter)
