What is Pulse Expansion?


Last week, Garmin announced its newest line of marine radars, the GMR 2524 xHD2 and GMR 2526 xHD2, which are designed for serious fishermen and long-range cruisers. One new feature that is included in these powerful new high-definition radars, along with current model xHD2 open array and xHD dome radars (with free software upgrade), is something called Pulse Expansion.

Pulse Expansion provides mariners the ability to increase the duration of the transmit pulse, which helps maximize the energy on targets. As you can see in the above image, this provides a larger target size on the chartplotter and gives you a better chance at identifying targets at longer range that you might have otherwise missed.
