When operating offhore or at the coastline correct radar tuning is essential. Incorrect gain or tilt can make surface targets or islands invincible. Moving map and GWPS depend on correct data base and GPS position. A operational radar correctly tuned is the best insurance to confirm a flight path free of obstacles. Combination of Radar, FLIR, Moving Map, GPWS will give a good situation awareness. A SAR operator will normally describe a standard MFD set up for low level navigation.
