A radar reflector is generally installed as an additional device in locations that may also be marked with a light signal; being one of its main functions the detection of targets at a great distance, thus reducing the risk of collision of a vessel.

MSM has several models of radar reflector, indicated for use on buoys or fixed structures, and designed to ensure that their signal is displayed strongly on the vessel radar screens. These models project areas ranging from 8m² to 36m².

They are manufactured by using eight overlapping spiral trihedrons, producing a strong and persistent echo, thus covering 360º. Trihedral radar reflector is best suited for applications in floating aids and in situations where there is considerable difference between the height of the radar reflector and the one from vessels passing through the area.
