a new Radar series from JRC incorporating the latest technology and user features.
JRC JMA-5300 series Marine Radar is developed to enhance the radar performance, user-friendly operation and visibility, which meet radar & ATA/ARPA performance standards specified in IMO.
The X and S-Band radar utilizing software-based digital signal processing with high performance computer-based technologies, offers the unique "Constaview™" feature, providing radar of images in Real-Time Head-Up mode that rotates a radar echo image simultaneous to ship turning, "Target Enhancement Function (TEF)™", and target acquisition and tracking up to 100 using ATA/ARPA function.
The JMA-5300 series represents a major advance in Radar technology. The newly developed processing system gives users a range of new features not previously found on this class of radar.
Chart information can be combined with the radar image to present a complete overview of activity around the vessel.
The radar image is combined with information from electronic charts. Own and other ship's tracks and AIS targets can be plotted and waypoints entered.
This is a significant contribution to safe navigation.
Target enhancement function(TEF)™
Developed exclusively by JRC, TEF™ allows better indentification of small / or weak echoes. Equally, coastlines appear with improved definition.
TEF™ works by adding pixels to targets displayed on the radar image and allows a vastly improved degree of distinguishing between targets.
Sophisticated processing results in a proportional enhancement where the relative enhancement of smaller targets is greater than that applied to larger targets.
The TEF™ is available in three levels-5x, 9x and 17x.
All the information gathered by the radar is stored in the system, therefore switching from one view, i.e North-up to Head-up or Range changes, instantly produces a new, complete radar image, reflecting the new selection.
Targets that need to be closely followed can easily be re-identified on the new image. The Constaview™ represents a major contribution to safety and operational flexibility.
Real-time Head-up mode
JMA-5300 series - developed for maximum ease of use
Full control - all radar operations can be carried out using the keyboard or on-screen using a PS trackball.
- Compact and ultra flat keyboard.
- Dedicated buttons for major functions.
- Large, easy to use analog controls for EBL, VRM, GAIN, SEA and RAIN.
- Integrated trackball with connection to a PS/2 trackball. (option)
The combination of push button and analog controls of the keyboard ensure a logical, precise operation. The newly developed processor technology ensures that selections are instantly displayed on the screen.
The new JMA 5300 series radar also gives the user full control via the screen. An optional PS/2 trackball can be installed allowing the operator to use the on-screen menus for all radar operations.
Clear on-screen information
Menu selections, via the Keyboard or Trackball are clearly shown on the display - allowing 'at a glance' interpretation of the radar image. A wide-screen option allows the entire display screen to be used for radar image presentaiton, whilst important information remains visable.
