Garmin introduces Radar testing facility

Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, is pleased to announce the completion of a radar testing facility at its European Headquarters in Southampton.

The facility will enable onsite radar test & system diagnosis and facilitate the repair of customers’ equipment. The anechoic chamber, which took around 4 weeks to complete and was designed and manufactured by Garmin engineer Andy King, is one of only a handful used for radar diagnosis in the country.

The chamber provides a safe place for radar to be tested as it absorbs emissions and allows accurate measurement of the Radar’s performance.

Nic Bowler Operations Manager for Garmin said: “We are delighted to be able to provide radar testing onsite as this improves our customer care offerings.

“As an innovative company, Garmin is always striving to increase its efficiency and environmental procedures – with our own radar facilities we no longer need to send product away for diagnosis, reducing both our costs and carbon footprint.”
