The modernization of shipping increasingly requires safe and efficient navigation. The transition to IBS for the requirement is proposed and classification society has defined requirements of IBS. DNV obliges installation of Chart Radar as configuration equipment of INS, which is defined as sub system of IBS. Therefore Chart Radar is required as safer navigational equipment from the market. On the other hand, the navigational Radar which will be installed after 1st July 2008 has required to comply with IMO standard MSC.192(79). Therefore JRC has developed the new Chart Radar which can comply with new IMO standard and satisfy the demand of the market, and also get higher performance and reliability than past product. This equipment will be a product to contribute for safer navigation.
