Radar wave measurement is the only means of obtaining highly accurate wave information that can be carried by ship, reflecting the real-time and actual wave conditions of a ship's current navigation area. The nonlinear evolution of waves can simultaneously be effectively described by a model based on the mNLS equation. The purpose of this paper is to combine a radar wave measurement system with the mNLS equation by selecting the radar wave spectrum with application conditions of ϵ ≤ 0.3 and Δf/f0 ≤ 0.2 to construct initial conditions and simulate the nonlinear evolution of waves.
